All Authors Blog Blitz Featuring Author Katharina Gerlach

Today I am pleased to feature author Katharina Gerlach through the All Authors Blog Blitz put on at Goodreads by author Y. Correa. Enjoy!

Katharina Gerlach is a writer of Young Adult books and an independent publisher. Living in Germany despite her preference for all things Scottish, she writes fantasy and historical novels in English and German. All of her stories have a slight European flavor.

In my opinion, writing Horror, like writing humor, is much harder than writing any other genre. Things that paralyze me might not be scary for someone else, so naturally I shy from the genre. Unfortunately, once in a while, a story or nightmare pops up that fits the genre. Sometimes I can set it aside, but sometimes the story insists on getting written.
This happened with the story “Wedding Nights” in my two-story anthology

I woke from a nightmare that scared me so much, I had to get it out by writing a story loosely based on the dream. When I finished revising it, I set it aside to never look at it again (I still cannot read the story to this day).

One day, a small German publisher asked me to submit a story to a horror anthology. On a whim, I send this one and it was accepted. That’s the reason why I have a short horror anthology among all my Young Adult and Middle Grade fantasy stories and historical novels.
Whenever another nightmare will force me to write more horror stories, I will add them to the existing anthology. For me, it’s the best way to “get rid” of them, and for some readers it might just be the scare they had been looking for.

I want to thank Katharina for sharing her experience and story with us. As a fan and writer of horror, I can easily relate to this!
