Michaelbrent is a #1 internationally bestselling writer, and a bestseller in over 40 countries. He is one of the top indie horror writers in the United States, and has been one of Amazon's Most Popular Horror Writers for going on three straight years.

He's also a produced screenwriter and member of the Writers Guild of America, Horror Writers of America, International Thriller Writers, and a couple other groups with spiffy-sounding names.

Perhaps most important, he makes amazing chocolate chip waffles. Mind. Blown.


Q: What is your profession and how are you connected to the writing world?

A: I am a writer. That's it. I used to be a moose wrangler, but the owners started complaining, saying things like "I don't need my mooses wrangled!" and "Leave my meese* alone" and "You know the restraining order applies to both me AND my moose!" So I gave it up and focused on writing. Also, writing has the huge bonus of being pants-optional, which is almost as cool a job perk as having a spacesuit. If I am ever offered a job as a writing astronaut whose spacesuit has no pants . . . WOW!

But for now, I'm just a writer. I'm one of the top selling indie horror writers in the U.S., I sell pretty well in a number of other countries as well (bestseller in over 40 countries as of this writing), and I also work in Hollyweird as a screenwriter from time to time.

But the moose... the moose will always have my heart.

Q: What inspires you to write?

A: The need to eat.

Q: Tell us about your writing process.

A: See above. I sit down with my computer and face off. There can be only one.

Occasionally I square off with a pad of paper. There can still be only one.

Q: What do you think about the future of book publishing?

A: It will happen sometime after today.

Q: What first attracted you to horror writing?

A: Probably the chance to attract babes.

Q: What's next for you?

A: More writing!
