MARTIN LASTRAPES | I, Writer (Short Film)

MARTIN LASTRAPES | I, Writer (2017)

In collaboration with Greg Lastrapes and Bird + Goldfish, I star in this absurdist video that kinda, sorta, maybe sheds light on my very mysterious writing process.


On Writing Literary Horror, Cannibal Cults, And Vampires

FROM JOANNA PENN:

"There are some books which stick in your mind, even years later. 'Inside The Outside' by Martin Lastrapes is one of those books, and today I talk to Martin about his inspirations for writing literary horror, and why 'nice' people like us love to write of the darkness."

FROM INLANDIA LITERARY JOURNEYS:

"Novelist Martin Lastrapes, of Rancho Cucamonga, said he would have been satisfied if just one reader outside his circle of family and friends enjoyed reading his book. He got much more than that, winning prizes and hitting best-seller lists for his cannibal fiction, set in the San Bernardino Mountains."
