Fraser Sherman

The Happiest Place on Earth, flash fiction, Issue 25, December 1, 2013

I was born in England, then moved to Florida with my family when I was 11 (kept the accent though). I graduated college with a degree in biology I didn't want to use and decided since I'd started writing a novel senior year, I'd just go ahead and be a writer. Which meant lots of grunt jobs, assorted nonfiction sales (everything from Dragon Magazine to Painting and Wallcovering), then 10 years as a full-time newspaper reporter. I'd probably still be a reporter except I met my wife LeAnn in 2008 and moved to Durham, NC to be with her. We married two years ago and now I freelance full-time.

Get to know Fraser...
Birthdate? March 18, 1958
When did you start writing? My senior year at college.
When and what and where did you first get published? A Sherlock Holmes/Lovecraft crossover, "The Adventure of the Red Leech" in Eldritch Tales back in the early 1980s.
What themes do you like to write about? A lot of my stories deal with people who need to reconnect with the world in one way or another. 
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? I think reading comic books from childhood has probably influenced me more than anything. I grew up reading about a world where anything could happen and I don't think I've been satisfied with reality since.
