Author or Writer? According to the dictionary, a writer is “one who expresses ideas in writing” or “one engaged in literary work.” An author is “a person who writes a novel, poem, essay etc. The composer of a literary work.”

So yeah, author. Three finished novels, five more in progress, plus assorted poems and “essays” (essentially social media rants). But if you ask, “What do you do?” at a dinner party, I’ll say “writer” like every other author.

I write genre fiction. Horror, Sci-fi, Occult Horror, Crime, Thrillers and Comedy. Sometimes all in the same novel, like my award-winning, bestselling (#1 in Horror) debut effort, The Book of Paul.
