Part two of my recent interview with the guys at trek.fm‘s Stage 9 is now live! In this segment, we talk about my new “weird Western” tale “Midnight Rider,” from the new anthology Out of Tune, Book 2, edited by Jonathan Maberry.
My story was inspired by the old English ballad “The Suffolk Miracle,” and I spoke with Stage 9 about the thought process that led me to make the creative decisions necessary for this adaptation of the ballad’s tale to a new setting and ending. We also discuss the challenges and rewards of writing short fiction versus novels.
Give it a listen!
