Meet The Writer: Samuel Bonner

Playground by Samuel BonnerWhat first attracted you to horror writing?

When I was around eighteen and studying creative writing at London Metropolitan, a friend of mine gave me a copy of Clive Barker’s Books of Blood, because he said there was a story in there that the film Candyman was based on (I’m a big horror film fan, Candyman being one of my favourites). That story, ‘The Forbidden’, was written in such a ridiculously elegant style that I became insanely jealous of Barker and wanted to write something really outstanding and inventive and creepy and weird and scary.
