Author Interview: Steve Vernon

Steve VernonName: Steve Vernon

Do you write with a pen name? If so, what is it?

Given that I write in so many varied genres I probably should have adopted a pen name – but I’ve always used my own name.

In which country were you born, and which one do you live in now?

I was born in Ontario.

Which genres do you write in?

I have written several ghost story collections, one true crime collection, one middle grade novel, one YA novel, one children’s picture book and an awful lot of horror fiction.

How many books have you had published? (feel free to name a few of the most recent)

Wow. I have written seven regional books – all released through local Nova Scotia press Nimbus Publishing. They include my latest release Maritime Murder: True Tales of East Coast Homicide (due out this month), as well as Haunted Harbours: Ghost Stories From Old Nova Scotia, Wicked Woods: Ghost Stories From Old New Brunswick, Maritime Monsters (a children’s picture book), Halifax Haunts, Sinking Deeper and The Lunenburg Werewolf.

I have also written numerous novels, novellas and short story collections – so many and in so many varied formats – that truthfully, I have lost count.

In addition to the seven regional books I have three horror novels – Devil Tree, Tatterdemon and Gypsy Blood – available in either traditional or e-book format, depending on the book. I have several novellas available – Long Horn Big Shaggy, Plague Monkey Spam, Sudden Death Overtime, Leftovers and many others – again, available in either traditional or e-book format.

How many?

Like I say – I’ve lost count.
