Today's interview is with Monica Sagle, author of Storm House. Her story is featured in A Haunting of Words, with my story, Pepe.
What is your story about? Storm House is about a house that, with every storm, sees the ghostly re-enactment of a murder. A wife killed by her husband. In recent years, the wife had managed to change things and now they take turns killing each other. This time, she thinks she may have found a way to sleep through those annoying storms forever.
How long have you been a writer? I have always written little stories for myself. However, about four years ago, I decided to take it seriously, learning as much as I could about the craft and art of writing. I joined a critique group of several online critiquing groups.
What genre do you associate most with your writing? I generally say that I am a fantasy writer. Although some of my short stories are sci-fi and speculative fiction.
What are you working on now? I recently finished my first novel. I'm looking for an agent at this time. I have started a new novel.
What advice would you offer to new writers? Learn the craft, then the art of writing, and be prepared to be learning for the rest of your life, as the learning never ends. And find a good critiquing group, either physically or online to help hone your craft.
