Please welcome Glenn Rolfe to Roadie Notes…..
1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story?
I wrote a flash piece called “The Eyes” when I was twenty-five. It was about my girlfriend at the time’s mannequin head that she worked on for hair school. After about six more short pieces, I just sort of stopped. I didn’t pick it up again until about nine years later when I decided to write a novel.
2. How many books have you written?
Four novels (two that have been published) and four published novellas. I also put out a short story collection.
Blood and Rain (2015, Samhain Publishing)
The Haunted Halls (Matt Shaw Publications, 2016)
Abram’s Bridge (2015, Samhain Publishing)
Boom Town (2015, Samhain Publishing)
Things We Fear (2016, Samhain Publishing)
Chasing Ghosts (2016, Sinister Grin Press)
Slush (2014, Alien Agenda Publishing)
3. Anything you won’t write about?
Torturing babies, or anything horrible that includes a baby.
4. Tell me about you. Age (if you don’t mind answering), married, kids, do you have another job etc…
I’m about to turn thirty-nine. I’m married (eleven years), three kids (Ruby, Ramona, and Axl). I work full-time at a hotel and enjoy playing out with my punk rock buddies when I can.
5. What’s your favorite book you have written?
One of my books that is in the editing stages. It’s called, WINDOW. Hopefully, it will be out within the next year or so.
6. Who or what inspired you to write?
A combination of Stephen King, Leisure Books Horror Club back in the 2000’s, and just an urgent need to create.
7. What do you like to do for fun?
I like to hang with my family, read a book, or watch American football with a beer and some hot wings.
8. Any traditions you do when you finish a book?
Use it as an excuse to have another beer. Then start the next one.
9. Where do you write? Quite or music?
Either on my overnight shift Saturday and Sunday at the hotel or in the early hours in the morning before my kids wake up.
10. Anything you would change about your writing?
Just to keep getting better. I’m really only five years into this thing. I hope I continue to learn and write better and better books.
11. What is your dream? Famous writer?
To get out of debt, buy a house, and see my kids do better than I ever did.
12. Where do you live?
I live in West Gardiner, Maine, USA. About an hour and a half from Stephen King’s place.
We have two cats and two birds.
14. What’s your favorite thing about writing?
Creating these really cool characters and putting them through hell. J
