L. Vera: Edward Lorn, It’s a pleasure to have you on AKAQ.
Edward Lorn: It’s my pleasure being here. Thank you for your support of Three After and interest in joining the Dastardly blog tour.
L. Vera: So it must be fun writing horror. What’s your most favorite “death” that you have written?
Edward Lorn: I don’t really have a favorite death. I tend to fall in love with my characters. Sometimes they die. It’s just what happens in a horror novel. But if I absolutely had to choose, a death that stands out for me would probably be in my short story, World’s Greatest Dad. It involves a bad guy and a meat hook. That death was fun, only because I believe it was completely deserved.
L. Vera: Any crazier deaths in the future of your writing career?
Edward Lorn: I’d hate to give away any spoilers, but I assure you there will be plenty of deaths in my future novels. Who knows? I might write a book where everyone dies. That would be crazy.
L. Vera: Why Horror? I know you’ve dabbled in other genres, but what brings you back to horror every time?
Edward Lorn: Horror is a passion of mine. I enjoy all types of reading material, but while writing, I tend to go for the darker side of things. Horror contains elements of every other genre, or at least it should. I prefer horror with a little heart. I want people to feel bad when someone dies. I try to do that with all my characters.
L. Vera: If you can give other authors a writing tip? What would it be?
Edward Lorn: To just shut up and write. Stop piddling around wondering what your next project is going to be about and let your characters speak for themselves. So much more fun that way.
L. Vera: What should we expect in the future from you?
Edward Lorn: I have one new novel done, but it’s sitting in a virtual drawer for now so I can come back to it with fresh eyes at a later date. I’m about a quarter through another one, but I have no idea which will be next.
L. Vera: Thank you Edward Lorn. It was both a pleasure and a treat to have you on AKAQ.
Edward Lorn: Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate what you’re doing here. Keep up the good work.
