Kindle Author is currently running an interview with Joel Arnold about his novel Northwoods Deep, the horror genre, and self-publishing on Kindle.
Joel Arnold lives in Savage, Minnesota with his wife and two kids. His writing has appeared in over five-dozen publications, ranging from Weird Tales and Chizine to Amercian Road Magazine and Gothic.net. Many of his short stories are available as free podcasts at Pseudopod.org. He was recently awarded a 2010 Minnesota Artist Initiative Grant.
In response to a question about the scariest book he’s ever read, Arnold says, “Probably Stephen King’s Pet Semetary. Just the thought of bringing back your child from the dead, but then to realize they basically have no soul left … as a parent, that’s really creepy! One of my favorite novels, The Lord of the Flies, by Golding, also scared me as a teenager, in that these kids, left to their own devices, became so savage.”
