Today's spotlight features author F.A. Fisher and the creepy story "Fighting Sleep," that appears in the anthology, A Haunting of Words, with my story, "Pepe."
Tell us about your story: The new crib smells wrong to Ross. His parents won’t listen to him because he’s only four, but how can he protect his new sister from it all by himself? The truth is, he’s afraid the crib is haunted. He’s right.
What inspired you to write this story? I overheard a small girl when she walked into a room, looked at the crib, and said, “That crib looks evil.” I thought the idea of an evil crib sounded pretty cool, so I wrote the story.
How long have you been writing? Off and on for thirty years. Last year I decided to get serious about it, and published my first two novels.
What genres do you most associate with in your writing? Science Fiction and Fantasy
What are you working on right now? The third novel in my Cloaks series.
What else have you published?
My first novel is Cloaks. The sequel is Pandir Decloaked.
What advice do you give to new writers? Keep writing. Don’t stop (repeatedly!) like I did.
