Shanda Vogel is the author of “Killers” In Dark Moon Digest 17.
1. What was the very first story you ever wrote, and what happened to it?
The first story I ever wrote was more like fan-fic than original fiction. I was inspired by the Castlevania video games when I was little and came up with my own story for the lore. Over the years it developed into an original idea, changing entirely from what it was. I am still working on it to this day, though it has become a completely new animal.
2. What is the scariest thing that ever happened to you on Halloween?
I went to a haunted house once. For the most part it was dull and obvious, but still fun. In one room though, I was caught completely off guard by a ghoul who was up on stilts blending into the wall. He actually terrified me and it was wonderful.
3. What are your future plans for writing?
Currently I am working on a novel series, and I hope to have the first installment done in the next year or so. When I am satisfied with it I will seek a publisher, and hopefully start a career in fiction writing.
4. Tell us something really off-the-wall non-writing related about you.
I love to make props and costumes, then cosplay at comic book conventions as my favorite characters.
