What first attracted you to horror writing?

My Mother, E.M. Weale, was a historical novelist in the 1930s. She always encouraged me to write.

The Pony Riders by Guy N SmithWhat is your most notable work?

That depends on my readers. My personal favourite is The Pony Riders.

What are you working on now?

I am a journalist with weekly deadlines. There is a new novel almost ready to go. Fiction, though, has to be written in my spare time and I don’t get much of that!

Who do you admire in the horror world?

R. Lionel Fanthorpe and several pre-war writers.

Do you prefer all out gore or psychological chills?

I like horror to be fun and to be laced with humour. I don’t like psychological horror although I have written it. Unleash the crabs and let’s all have a laugh! I always prefer short novels – 50,000 words max.

Why should people read your work?

Because it’s fun. First and foremost my policy is to entertain.

Recommend a book

The Fu- Manchu series by Sax Rohmer. They are all so good that I find it difficult to recommend any specific one out of the 13. Each one was a best seller.
