A Debut of the Macabre with T.S. Hurt

T.S. Hurt's debut into the publishing world "Pumpkinface", is a gruesome tale of dangers within the woods, and will be featured in our upcoming anthology "It Calls From The Forest"

T.S. Hurt has been telling lies since childhood. His favorite genre to read is horror/suspense, and this might either be the cause of why his path has led him into such dark places he explores in his writing or quite possibly, it is because he has never been able to escape the tethers of his childhood and truly enjoys the thrill of misleading his readers, urging them to come along on the journey with him.

Have you always written, or was there a catalyst that prompted you to begin this journey?

I have told stories ever since stories were told to me.

Do you remember the first piece of writing shared publicly? What were people’s reactions, but more importantly how did you react getting it out there?

I have only ever shared my stories to a close-knit group of readers. Shyness.

“Pumpkinface” will be this writer’s debut effort. T.S. Hurt hopes that his readers will be a part of this exciting moment in history as the world will be introduced to a bad man with an even worse plan.

What is your workspace like? What kind of atmosphere do you need to write?

Certainly not a writer’s loft in a cabin out in the woods. It’s a cramped corner of a small room on a laptop that runs slower than I do. Well lit for a confident atmosphere.

What is your favourite genre to read?

Horror and Suspense

Your story Pumpkinface will be featured in the new anthology. Without giving too much away, tell us a little bit about it and what inspired you to write it?

Pumpkinface is story that explores the borderland just outside of safety where danger lurks and where terror feeds off of the light. Inside this story is where my monster is real and Pumpkinface makes the rules.

My initial idea of Pumpkinface came from a desire to see a new, fresh face in the likes of psychopaths and serial killers that we haven’t seen since the grand era that brought us the slasher films of the late 1970s and 80s. That inspired me to create a bad man with his own signature style of killing.
