“Our faith led us to write a horror story.”

A few days ago, one of the publicists I work with in Hollywood called me. She asked if I wanted an interview with the Hayes brothers who wrote the screenplay for The Conjuring.

Thankfully, she said homicide wouldn’t be necessary, and she would be more than happy to set up an interview.I love talking to fellow writers. I like hearing how their brain ticks and what motivates them to make certain storyline choices. After seeing The C … [Read more...]
