Another Twisted author interview!
It's my pleasure to introduce R.G. Westerman.
R.G. Westerman is a Self-Published Indie Author who previously worked full time as a ghostwriter. She decided she was tired of writing for everyone else and turned hands to keyboard for her own stories. Currently, she lives in Tennessee with her gorgeous husband and two genius children. Her monthly newsletter can be accessed here, and she runs a book marketing blog here.
Name of story included in Twisted:
Describe the mood of your story.
I like to try to write stories which touch on the human condition in some way. At the end of the day we all fear something. I like to poke those fears with a stick and flip the rock over to see what is there.
Where did you get the inspiration for this piece?
From a dream I had as a child.
What is your favorite thing about writing horror?
For my short stories, I don't think I sit down with the sole intention of writing horror. I write the stories, and sometimes they end up being horror. That being said, I like a monster more than any human bad guy ever. Monsters are easy. Monsters are manageable. That's probably why I gravitate towards horror.
What are you working on now?
Currently, I am finishing up the final episode of the Rising Ash Saga, Thorn, which will be available soon on Amazon. I am looking forward to NanoWrimo coming up this November. I can't say what genre I'm writing this time around, but it rhymes with bleampunk.

“The Spectre” had an eerie feel
and left me taking a second look at all my childhood scars.
Stay tuned for more interviews! Halloween draws nearer.
