What first attracted you to horror writing?

I’ve always loved horror. Some of my first memories are of being scared silly by Dr Who in the early 1970s. When I was little I was one of those children who was terrified of everything and perpetually nervous, and horror seemed to take the edge off that and allowed all those neurotic emotions to be channelled somewhere, and actually I think it was tremendously healthy for me to have an outlet like that from an early age. As I got older I relished the more imaginative aspects of the genre, and as I got older still, I realised I loved horror more than anything else because it really is the most extreme of genres –if you take love stories, dramas and even comedies to extremes you end up with horror. It really is a very broad church, a genre you can do almost anything with.
