Another fun one today with an author who continues to deliver brutal and poignant stories! Bridgett is supportive, kind and always encouraging!
Please, do welcome Bridgett!
Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try and write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?
BN: I am a very undisciplined writer, in that I don’t write at specific times, I don’t typically have a word count goal, and I don’t write every day. I’ve found when I try to implement these things, it really stifles the creative process for me—which isn’t a great thing when you’re on a deadline. I have to be inspired to write; otherwise, I just sit and stare at the screen.
In other words, I’m naughty.
Steve: You end up at an estate sale and discover an unpublished manuscript from an author you love. Do you keep it just for yourself or do you share it with the world?
BN: I would take that sucker home and share it with a few of my closest author friends, just so we could giggle maniacally at conventions and say in singsong-y voices, “We know something that you don’t know!”
In other words, I’m immature.
Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!
BN: My debut collection, A BOUQUET OF VISCERA, was published in March. It’s a fairly extreme, very dark, revenge-filled set of eight stories. Jeff Strand, Bram Stoker Award winner, said my story, “Jinx” was a ‘Jack Ketchum level kick in the gut.’” Another reviewer said about “Jinx” – “I found it both disturbing and repugnant. And that’s really saying something after reading AMERICAN PSYCHO. After finishing it, I really considered tossing this book and giving it a horrible review…”
In other words, my book makes landfills look boujie.
Steve: Bonus Question! You wake up in a comic book. What is your comic book character and what is your superpower?
BN: My name would be Pugantula! I’d lure evil people/creatures into my web with my adorable snorts and squishy face. Hiking my leg and peeing on them is a must. Then, of course, being half tarantula, I’d bite into them with my fangs, kill them with my venom, and dissolve their flesh so I could eat and digest them. But you got that I was super cute, right?
In other words, you really shouldn’t trust me.
Lol! Excellent choice!
