Hi, dearest reader! I am Doom Vroom. I fell in love with the horror genre at either eleven or twelve years old upon catching a televised showing of Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood. At roughly that same period of time, my 6th grade English teacher assigned my class a project where we partnered up and had to give each other descriptions of a robot and do our best to draw described robot. I later on wrote a story about the robot that I had drawn - out of boredom - and discovered my love for writing as a result. I made some low quality comics, Mario Bros fanfiction (so awful), and Star Wars fanfiction for quite a few years before branching out into the horror genre. Out of all those genres, it was horror that clicked and allowed me the most growth as a writer. I still dabble with different genres, such as comedy, on occasion.
When I sit down to write, I only have two goals in mind: make a story that I like, and do something that I feel is unique. I mean, if I write something and don't like it as its creator, then why would anyone else like it? Um, I guess it'd be rather accurate to say that I look at whatever I am partaking in for inspiration when it comes to writing. For example, Foryeti Me Not has mountain climbing. I was playing the Tomb Raider reboot and thought that would be fun to include in a story (I had also recently read about the Dyatlov Pass Incident). A quick merging of those things and bam, idea for a story! Oh, I also try to make my stories as realistic as possible and keep characters from doing stupid things unless it suits their character (like, if there is a killer in someone's house and the owner is aware, you can bet they are going to try to call the police).

Other Projects: I am currently working on a murder mystery set in a castle during the 15th century called Dinner with a Count and have plans to write a horror-comedy that is about a courtroom which is haunted during a trial, Geist who's on Trial. I also have plans to make my own visual novels. I am working on a couple of scripts for those which are intended to be at least 80,000 words (hit 40,000 on two of them so far)!
