Scene It First with Jonathan Janz (Ep. 1)


Scene It First with Jonathan Janz (Ep. 1)

The first episode of the Fictionary Scene It First interview series kicked off with my interview of horror author Jonathan Janz on January 25, 2023.

Janz is one of my favorite authors, so it was a true pleasure to speak with him about his celebrated career, his upcoming works, and his insights on scene construction.
