If you are a fan of the film or a fan of the genre you will be happy to know that you can buy the book on Amazon now.




Horror Fuel: “Why horror?”

SM: “I have always been fascinated with horror and obsessed with Friday the 13th. Growing up I always watched AMC Fear Fest. I love the excitement. Horror is like an adventure.”


Horror Fuel: “So I guess it would be easy to say that Friday the 13th is your favorite?”

SM: “Yes it is. My favorite is ‘Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Beginning.  But Halloween runs a close second. In fact, I’m working on a Halloween trivia book now. I only have a few more chapters to go. I’m on chapter 9. Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis wrote the intro for my Halloween trivia book. She even talks about things that happened on the set.”


Horror Fuel: “When do you expect it to be out?”

SM: “It should be out around December.”


Horror Fuel: “What’s next after The Ultimate Halloween Trivia Book?”

SM: “Next, I will be working on an Ultimate Slasher Encyclopedia.”
