A brief timeline -- albeit, one that I am proud of.
I worked out that working out works out for my writing.
An insight on what inspires me when I write stories that go bump in the night.
Tik tik tik goes this brain of mine...
From classic to cosmic, the gruesome to the gothic, check out the authors that inspired me.
So honoured to have been chosen as the featured story for Hinnom Magazine Issue 002! C.P. Dunphey is doing amazing work so be sure to check out his releases and posts!
Greetings from the Ethereal Plane,
Let the interview commence!
CP: Can you tell us a little bit about your story “Godmouth?” What inspired it and how did it come to fruition?
PL: Honestly, the inspiration for this story was a bit of a fluke. One day I misheard someone and thought they’d said the word “godmouth.” They hadn’t but it got me thinking what a “godmouth” would be. From there the story was born. The cosmic horror overtones definitely come from Lovecraft’s influence on my life. In the end, most of my stories are inspired by the mundane or by random thoughts. I’m a bit of a pessimist so usually I start thinking what the worst-case scenario would be and things spiral into horror from there.

When people find out I write, they often ask me "when did you first start writing?" - or in other words, how I upset my grade 4 teacher.
