Dark Secrets by Matthew W. Grant

Describe your book Dark Secrets in ten words or less

Dark Secrets – the Powers of Darkness infest a small New England town

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

When I was a teenager, I always loved to read YA horror novels so I wrote the kind of book I would have enjoyed.

What was your favorite part to write and why?

My favorite part to write was the the climax scene.

Wait, that sounds like I might be describing another kind of book!

Seriously, it is a little hard to describe the climax scene without giving away any of the plot, but it’s safe to say that there is an unholy ritual and a supernatural battle between good and evil.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

All my time is spent in writing in one form or another including including, novels, short stories, non-fiction, product descriptions, marketing materials, and even coming up with tee-shirt sayings.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

I have so many, it’s hard to choose!

Since it’s October [when the interview was done], it would be appropriate to talk about another horror novel that I’m working on. This one is called The Killer Net and it’s in the thriller/suspense/slasher sub-genre. It’s about a killer who meets his victims online.

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
