Pre-Triage – Joe Prosit

As of today, I’m a human crumple-zone. I saw to that myself. The highway network will see my car and label me the perfect impact absorber. There was a time I thought I had things all figured out.

A question for Joe Prosit

Q: Do you write with a particular audience in mind?

A: I don’t write for any particular reader in mind. I guess I’m self-serving in the way that, if I enjoy the story, if I think it’s creepy or compelling or speaks to me, then I write it. When other people connect, it makes it all the more satisfying because it’s natural and unforced. Nothing is contrived.
