Featured Interview With Jeremy Thompson
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I write horror, SF, thrillers and bizarro fiction. My bibliography includes The Phantom Cabinet, The Fetus and Other Stories, and Into the Darkness: Volume One’s closing tale.
I was born in Long Beach, CA, and have lived in Jacksonville, FL and Corpus Christi, TX. Currently, I live in Southern California. As for pets, my pit bull just died of cancer, and I am looking into getting a new dog.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I have been reading books for as long as I can remember. Back in elementary school, I was obsessed with the Goosebumps series and the works of Stephen King. While growing up, I did write a couple of short stories for school assignments, I didn’t take writing seriously until 2002.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?

Salinger, Peter David, Chris Claremont, Clive Barker, Warren Ellis, Jonathan Hickman, Michael Marshall Smith, Robert McCammon, Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, Neil Gaiman and Richard Matheson.
My favorite genre to read is supernatural horror. My writings are inspired by the aforementioned authors, as well as musical acts such as The Raveonettes, Pixies, MF Doom and Kool Keith, and the films of David Lynch, Richard Kelly and John Carpenter.
