Author Interview: Eddie Morales

Today I interview author Eddie Morales, author of Fright Tales.

Natasha: Tell me about yourself. How long have you been writing? When you are not writing, how do you like to spend your spare time?

Eddie: I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to the United States when I was 10 years old. I currently live in New Jersey along the Hudson River across from New York City. I have been writing on and off since high school back in 1977 when I wrote my first short horror story, The House of Death, which I re-wrote and have included in my collection of Fright Tales. During my spare time I like to read, travel, watch television, and go to the movies especially to watch horror movies.

Natasha: Tell us a little about Fright Tales. What was your favorite scene to write? What was your least favorite scene?

Eddie: Fright Tales is a collection of 13 short horror stories ranging from 1977 to 2016 published April 18, 2016 which is currently available as an eBook and paperback on Amazon. The stories cover everything from zombies, a vampire, creatures, ghosts, ghouls, and psychos. I don't want to give much away on which was my favorite scene to write, but it involved an encounter between a stiletto shoe and a zombie. My least favorite scene to write involved the separation of a Dad and his young son and the heartfelt emotions between them.

Natasha: Do you have any other exciting projects coming out?

Eddie: At this time, I do not have any other exciting projects coming out but I do keep busy writing short horror stories to be included in the follow up to Fright Tales to be completed and published sometime in the late summer of 2017.

Natasha: Do you have any advice for other authors trying to get published?

Eddie: My advice to other authors trying to get published is to enjoy what you do, believe in yourself, and try not to get discourage especially when rejected. Always seek feedback from others especially individuals that do not know you. Embrace the criticism, keep your head up, and eventually you will succeed in accomplishing your goals.

Natasha: What is the best way for readers to reach you? 

Eddie: The best way for readers to reach me is to follow me on Twitter under @morales_ej where they can join me in discussing the wonderful world of horror among other great topics.

Natasha: Thank you Eddie!

I met Eddie as a co-worker. I loved having conversations with him. You could talk to him about anything. He was well traveled. So he visited enough places that he could remembered and write some good stories about the area's and the history of the area that he visited. I look forward to the stories that will come from Eddie's imagination in the future. I wish you the best of luck with this book and all your future endeavors. Debbie Williams
