Author Questionnaire: C.S. Dixon

How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?

I think the fire to write burned within me from around seven or eight, my mother used to read us bedtime stories, a far from unique experience, but my imagination and love of words was fired then.

I have eclectic reading tastes as with my writing. Chandler, Poe, Lovecraft, Dickens and Tolkien.

If you could just feature one title, what would it be? 

That’s difficult, it’s like favoring one child over another. However, if forced, I’d have to say my first short story-Shadow which has been compared in quality to the work of Poe & King.
