Duncan Thompson has spent most of his life in a small market town in West Yorkshire — the same town in which most of his stories are set under the guise of Ravenfield. Duncan has been writing works of fiction since the age of seven. In those early days, his stories often involved himself and his friends being transported to fantasy worlds. However, as a teenager, Duncan fell in love with horror movies and his writing took a whole new direction.
In this episode of the DIY Writer Podcast, Duncan and I discuss his books then dive into classic movies, books, and actual life experiences that have formed his love and inspiration for his books. I enjoyed going over the old movies and books we had in common, including the classic American Werewolf in London and some older Stephen King novels that have inspired both of us.
