Who: I like horror books but I love them because when I was younger, my brother and I were in our family’s attic, while I was exploring the attic, I came across a book that initially belonged to my father. The book was called ‘The Lurker in the Shadows’ and the author that wrote the book was named H.P. Lovecraft. He made sci-fi horror stories in the late 1880’s. When I was reading it I became so obsessed I read the book so many times. After reading H.P. Lovecraft’s book I knew that I wanted to write books but not just ordinary books but horror books.
What: The hardest point of my life was at the beginning of when I was even famous because of writing books. Years after I was married to my wife, Tabitha Spruce. I was poor and my wife and I had to live in a trailer. Tabitha and I worked multiple jobs that would help us get money to pay for the taxes and provide food. But after I finished work, I usually go and write books that would fortunately make lots of money but after making my first book I tried publishing it to well-known book companies but unfortunately my book got rejected, I got many rejection letter that I had a system where I collect all my rejection letters and I would nail them on my trailer wall. But finally I sold my first book “The Glass Floor” for $35. My award-winning book, Carrie, was not best-selling at first. I had a dozen rejection until I sold it to Doubleday Publishing, but the hardback copy sold only 13,000 copies. After I sold my book, this company called Signet Book signed for the paperback rights for $400,000 which half for the amount went to me.
