A Bloody Valentine: Spencer Carvalho

Having fun yet? I know I am. My next victim is another State of Horror alum, Spencer Carvalho. He has also willingly suffered through my ridiculous questioning, so let’s see what he had to say.

FIVE QUESTIONS WITH SPENCER CARVALHO

It’s Valentine’s Day. What’s your take on the “Most Romantic Day of the Year?”

Valentine’s day is overrated.

What made you decide horror would be your genre of choice?

I actually write in various genres. The genres or types of my published stories include gothic fiction, experimental, comedy, parody, family friendly comedy, sci-fi comedy, high school comedy, flash fiction, war story, horror, sci-fi horror, horror comedy, action horror, fairy tale, neo western, and supernatural western. I’m all over the place.

From where do you pull your horror inspiration?

I sometimes draw inspiration for my stories from my dreams. Fourth Point, my story in the State of Horror: North Carolina anthology, started as a dream. Sometimes I’ll just get an interesting idea and let that form into a complete story.

What horror stereotype do you despise? What is one that you love?

The most annoying horror stereotype is that the characters in the horror story are all so stupid. I love the stereotype of interesting villain designs. Even if it’s a non supernatural person they always have an interesting costume. I guess serial killers have a flair for the dramatic.

What scares you?

Creepy people.
