Catching up with PAUL D. BRAZILL | You Would Say That, Wouldn’t You?

Short, Sharp Interview: Dan Weatherer

http://www.amazon.com/Soul-That-Screamed-Horrified-Press/dp/1291596127/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1388152727&sr=1-1&keywords=dan+weathererPDB: Can you pitch The Soul That Screamed in 25 words or less?

A collection of horror shorts to suit all (dis)tastes

PDB: Which music, books, films or television shows have floated your boat recently?

I really enjoyed ‘Seven Psychopaths’ and ‘Pacific Rim’ is kind of a guilty pleasure. ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ are my top television picks, though to be honest I watch relatively little TV!

Book wise I recently finished ‘The Necronomicon’ and have just started ‘The Satanic Bible.’

PDB: Is it possible for a writer to be an objective reader?

That’s a tough one. Personally, not if you have a real desire to write and to write well.

PDB: Do you have any interest in writing for films, theatre or television?

I see myself at the very beginning of my writing career, and so would not rule out trying my hand at either. In fact I have already written and produced a short film (‘The Legend of the Chained Oak’) which we will be screening at various festivals next year. That project may lead into me writing a feature length script. I also intend to make some of my short stories into films with a local film maker sometime in 2014.

Whenever I am looking to add authenticity or obscurity into a story, I’ll hit the books/internet.

PDB: How useful or important are social media for you as a writer?

As I am just starting to make a name for myself, Social Media has become invaluable! I also like the fact I can reach readers directly, either for feedback or just to build a rapport. The personal touch goes a long way, and I have been taken aback by the sheer amount of support I have received from people I have never met!

PDB: What’s on the cards for 2014?

2014 will see the release of ‘The Legend of the Chained Oak’; we have high hopes of success for the project. There will also be more collaboration with film makers and artists. Now I have secured the talents of Dean ‘Midas’ Maynard as my agent, I’ll be working hard to push my debut collection ‘The Soul that Screamed’ to a wider audience. Oh, and if I find the time…possibly a new book! Agnes Ferry has quite the fan club or so I hear…

BIO: Dan Weatherer began writing horror after losing his job at the start of 2013, a cruel twist of fate that turned out to be a blessing in disguise!

Discovered and published by Scathe meic Beorh, his first ever tale “The Legend of the Chained Oak” was an immediate success and was made into a movie, due Autumn 2014.

His next major project was a solo collection of short stories titled “The Soul That Screamed” (released Oct 23rd 2013.)  He will also collaborate with film-maker John Williams in the near future.

“Gilbert’s Well” is his first attempt at writing for a younger audience.

He lives in Staffordshire, where is married to his beautiful wife Jenni and is a (proud) full time dad to his daughter Bethany.

  1. What a terrific interview. Sounds like Dan Weatherer is where he’s meant to be, at last. Congratulations to him I would love to read his stories–whenever I escape my own horror story. haha. I’m a happier person just knowing how well he has made lemonade. This interview is the first thing here that truly excites me, Terry. There again, I really just got here.
