About the Stories – October’s Rein

October’s Rein is the second story in my short story collection, Abstract Clarity. It’s a horror story about how a woman’s love for Halloween goes horribly wrong!

With October’s Rein, I really wanted to write a good, creepy horror story that was short but gruesome. For a while now, I’ve been watching shows like Supernatural that include scary elements and I wanted to create my own horror show through writing. I never really used to be into horror movies, but then I started watching them with my dad. The first real ‘horror’ movie I saw was Secret Window, based off of Stephen King’s Secret Window, Secret Garden. From then on, I started watching slightly scarier movies and shows (Storm of the Century, The Night Flier, The Skeptic, etc.).

When it comes to a horror writer I really like, I really enjoy some of John Saul’s works. I like Stephen King as well, but haven’t really delved into a lot of his books yet. I have, however, seen quite a few of the movies based off of his works.

Getting back to October’s Rein, I really wanted to write a short, scary story. I wanted to make it imaginative and horrific. I used something that I was slightly scared of as a child and got creative with it, turning imagination into reality for my main character!

As for the title, October’s Rein, I have to thank my dad. I couldn’t seem to think of a title that wasn’t already taken and then he suggested this one. To say the least, I was very pleased with it!

I hope that you’ve all enjoyed this short look into my short story, October’s Rein, from my new collection, Abstract Clarity. To check out more about the book or purchase your own copy, please feel free to visit Amazon.com.
