Meet Richard Schiver

me_tombstone1smRichard Schiver is the author of “Skin”, a most interesting erotic horror story in Dark Moon Digest 14.

1. What inspired you to write the story that appears in Dark Moon Digest 14?

My natural suspicion of the people around us. I mean they could be aliens, or creatures from another dimension appearing as innocent individuals to make us let our guard down. And of course they gotta eat something.


2. What is the best piece of writing advice you have ever been given?

Don’t give up. I did once, for nearly eight years, I was miserable even though at the time I thought I was happy.

3. What other hobbies do you have?

Woodworking. I have a fully equipped woodshop in my basement, I’m talking a 12 inch planer, and jointer, lathe, table saw, and chop saw, air compressor and a slew of air nail guns. I like making things. My wife tells me I like making messes.

4. The most important question: milk or dark chocolate?

Both. I’m a chocoholic. There is no such thing as bad chocolate.

5. Pimp yourself include links.
