Spend five minutes with me at GINGER NUTS OF HORROR


I’ve rarely gotten to spend more than five or ten minutes with anyone lately because I’ve been so busy … but now I might have the opportunity to spend time with you vicariously!

Ginger Nuts of Horror has featured me in an interview in its “Five Minutes With” series. I have to admit, some of these questions were tough and not of the usual variety, which was a refreshing, fun challenge! I dish on the term horror’s sometimes negative connotations, how the socio/political climate is affecting the genre, which of the characters I’ve created is my favorite, which cliché/trope I’d eliminate if I could, and much, much more. You can read the full interview here: https://gingernutsofhorror.com/interviews/five-minutes-with-kristi-petersen-schoonover

  1. That was very impressive indeed! I liked when you said what’s scary for one person isn’t scary for another. If I hear the words, “We’re taking you to the mental hospital now…” that would be scarier than death. Someone else might think of some nice, cozy place where the nurses are all “professional” and you actually get therapy, but mostly, those images of the “nice” hospital are total delusions……

    • So glad you read and enjoyed that, thank you! Yes, I think it’s so important that we all recognize that often what terrifies us comes from our experiences; it’s a VERY individual thing. I am TERRIFIED by most ghost stories, but slasher films, or films in which people are being stalked, don’t scare me in the least. But I also know people who aren’t scared by anything supernatural at all, but freak out the second they watch movies about slashers in the woods. It’s endlessly interesting to me.
