Without further ado...
A Flame in the Dark: What is your favorite monster/horror icon?
Pete Turner: My favorite Horror icon would have to be Dexter Morgan from the TV show Dexter. A serial killer with a conscious?? A serial killer of serial killers? A serial killer that everyone roots for, I would have to say is a great twist in writing.
AFitD: Favorite horror movie?
PT: I have so many favorite horror movies- so I’ll narrow it to three: Psycho, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th (each of the originals)!
AFitD: Favorite author?
PT: My favorite author by far is Ted Dekker.
AFitD: One question you wish people would ask you, and your answer?
PT: The one question is how many tattoos I have… the answer is technically 15. But eventually my back will all be one and then it will be six.
AFitD: Who is Jesus, to you?
PT: Jesus to me is my Lord and personal savior. He is my inspiration to write. I'm not sure what I do in writing is ministry, but I do try and be educational in dealing with the forces of evil—Only Jesus Christ can defeat evil. It’s not our works or morals or mantras or ‘salt’ that defeats evil, but the power of Jesus!
