8Qs: Michael A. Arnzen

Eight Questions is an occasional series of interviews that I’m including on the site. Being a naturally gifted (read: lazy) interviewer, I will be using the same eight questions in every interview.

This time, the questions are being answered by award-winning horror writer and educator, Michael A. Arnzen. In addition to his role as Professor of English and Chair of the Humanities Division at Seton Hill University(1), Dr Arnzen has built a reputation for his intelligent, funny and often just plain disturbing horror. He won the first of his four Bram Stoker Awards in 1994 for his debut novel Grave Markings(2), and continues to make his indelible mark on the world of horror through novels, short fiction, poetry, and his newsletter the Goreletter(3).

8Qs: D.P. Lyle

Eight Questions is an occasional series of interviews that I’m including on the site. Being a naturally gifted (read: lazy) interviewer, I will be using the same eight questions in every interview.

This time, the questions are being answered by author D.P. Lyle, who – as well as producing his own award winning mystery novels and non-fiction – juggles careers as an MD and as a story consultant, having worked with many novelists and the writers of some TV shows you might have heard of such as Law & Order, CSI: Miami, House, Diagnosis Murder, and Monk. His blog on forensics for writers should be in every author’s internet favourites or rss feed.

8Qs: Michael Bywater

Eight Questions is an occasional series of interviews that I’m including on the site. Being a naturally gifted (read: lazy) interviewer, I will be using the same eight questions in every interview.

This time, the questions are being answered by journalist and celebrated essayist Michael Bywater whose work can be found in publications as diverse as the Daily Mail, the Independent, the Observer, Punch, the Telegraph, and of course all three Novel in a Day events. His website (www.michaelbywater.com) declares him to be a pilot, harpsichordist, cook, photographer, red-hot lover and self-deluding old goat. I am unable to personally verify any of these claims.
