Charles W. Jones grew up in a small town, Shoshoni, WY, and he managed to break free from its grasp with his dark soul intact. Growing up in a small town scared him to death most of the time. It’s very dark at night - really dark. To top it off, it is full of ghosts; well, that’s what Charles thought when he was a kid. Turns out it was just the constant wind blowing dirt around.
There isn’t a part of the horror genre Charles doesn’t like. He likes it creepy, filled with suspense or brutal with descriptive torture scenes. His favorite horror movies have always been the slasher movies; give him the gore. Lately, there hasn’t been anything that has made him even giggle once. Charles finds most horror movies funny; aren’t they supposed to be? Charles wrote The Second Plain because he was bored with what was out there in the horror genre at his local independent bookstore (literally a bookshelf 8” wide with four shelves and not even full). He decided that if Clive or Stephen can do it, then he could too.
