INTERVIEW: Brandon D. Henry

A Few Minutes With Brandon D. Henry

By Tammie Parker

Brandon D. Henry - Midnight Forever: Zombies 2

Once again, I stumble upon another creep (not that kind!) on Facebook: Brandon D. Henry. As I investigated him, I found out that he had quite a few spooky thoughts and macabre stories roaming around his gourd. In fact, Henry had already penned and published a few books and was working on his next.

My first Brandon Henry book was Midnight Forever: Zombies, which I purchased from Amazon. Definitely my kind of book, Midnight Forever combined short stories, poetry, and tips for surviving a zombie apocalypse. The combination of prose, poetry, and practical tips was a refreshing change from the usual zombie fare. After that, I purchased Midnight Forever: A Light at the End of the World, a book of short scary stories about everything from zombies to bullies to a plague of rats. Eventually I purchased all of his books, and Brandon and I have remained in contact via Facebook messenger. Just recently he hired me on as his editor (poor, unfortunate fellow), a job that came at the perfect time because I had just joined the staff at House of Tortured Souls!

Brandon D. Henry - Midnight Forever: Zombies

Recently, Brandon graciously agreed to sit down for a one-on-one question and answer session, so without further ado...

House of Tortured Souls: How long does it take to complete a book on average?

Brandon Henry: Zombies took about 3 months, from writing the rules to the stories. The books of short scary stories take up to two to three years or more. I've been writing material for years, some of which has been published and some still await publication.

 

HoTS: What are your personal favorite books?

Brandon Henry:Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King.

 

HoTS: Share three interesting facts about yourself.

BH: I love artwork, I enjoy dubstep, and I used to drink absinthe.

 

HoTS:How can people help support your work?

BH: Buy books - you can find my latest book on Amazon, share links on social media, and join and share The Midnight Graveyard forever Facebook group to stay updated.

 

HoTS:What prompted you to become an author?

BH: I read a book in junior high (AKA middle school) that was very simply written, so simply that I decided I could write something better. I wrote three stories in one night. By my standards now, they were terrible, but I did find out that I enjoyed writing.

Come check him out on Facebook. If you pay him proper, he won't bite... unless you want him to.
