Episode 55 – DM Shepard
NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer DM Shepard all about her Alaskan-set supernatural horror novella “The Dark Land.”
In the interview (the interview begins at 1:53 ), we talk to Daniella about the origins of her supernatural tale, how much of her characters are drawn from real life. And how useful she found the feedback from her Beta readers in the writing process. Also, talking of the writing process, she gives a fascinating insight into her somewhat isolated process writing in her remote cabin in Chicken, Alaska (Population: 7).
Away from “The Dark Land,” Daniella tells us about how she developed a long-life interest in legends, myths, and monsters, how she got into writing after being in the navy, and what she is working on next.
