Today author F.A. Fisher takes over my page with a discussion about his short story, "Fighting Sleep," appearing in the anthology A Haunting of Words, which also includes my brand new short story, "Anesthetize or A Dream Played in Reverse on Piano Keys"):
Synopsis: The new crib smells wrong to Ross. His parents won’t listen to him because he’s only four, but how can he protect his new sister from it all by himself? The truth is, he’s afraid the crib is haunted. He’s right.
What inspired you to write this story?: I overheard a small girl when she walked into a room, looked at the crib, and said, “That crib looks evil.” I thought the idea of an evil crib sounded pretty cool, so I wrote the story.
How long have you been writing?: Off and on for thirty years. Last year I decided to get serious about it, and published my first two novels.
What genres do you most associate with in your writing?: Science Fiction and Fantasy
What are you working on right now?: The third novel in my Cloaks series.
What else do you have available/published?: My first novel is Cloaks. The sequel is Pandir Decloaked.
What advice do you give to new writers?: Keep writing. Don’t stop (repeatedly!) like I did.
