Katherine Bryant is an author and artist hailing from Minnesota. When she is not busy writing tales of mayhem and adventure or creating miniature monstrosities from wool, she spends her time tending her menagerie and playing too many video games for her own good. As with most humans, you can find Katherine on Facebook and Twitter, as well as her website at katherinebryant.wixsite.com/author.
Name of stories included in Twisted:
"Taste So Good" and "Progress"
Describe the mood of your stories.
"Taste" is both seductive and gory. "Progress" has a vibe that could be summed up as decay.
Where did you get the inspiration for this piece?
"Taste" started out as practice for writing kissing scenes... but I was in a really bad mood when I wrote it, so it turned into its own monster. "Progress" came from a writing prompt.
What is your favorite thing about writing horror?
I like being able to tap into that messed up part of myself and express it in a way that won't get me burned at the stake. Also, freaking people out is fun. My sweetie wouldn't let me kiss him for a week after he read "Taste So Good."
What are you working on now?
Book two of my fantasy novella series "Branna's Song" and a currently untitled urban fantasy novel.
Other published works?
"Branna's Song: The Coldwood Saga" is available for pre-order on Amazon.
Katherine Bryant has a talent for getting a lot done in a short word count. "Taste so Good" was supremely creepy. (I can't fault him for holding off on the kissing after that. LOL.)
And though "Progress" could fit comfortably within the sci-fi or dystopian genre, I find its concept much more horrifying than a slasher killer or the supernatural. Nice additions to the anthology.
Stay tuned for more interviews!
