Part of what I love about writing is that journey of discovery where it’s all new to me as well.  (Michael Koryta Quotes) I’ve always listened to music while I write, but none of my work has been so directly impacted by a song as my new novel, ‘So Cold the River,’ for which the brilliant strings piece ‘Short Trip Home,’ composed by Edgar Meyer and featuring the incredible Joshua Bell on violin, inspired much of the story.  (Michael Koryta Quotes) Hopefully my books are improving. One of the ways I find motivation to improve is looking at someone who is already at a high level and continues to get better with each book. That’s really what you want to emulate.  (Michael Koryta Quotes) In ‘The Prophet’ I really fell in love with those characters, there was an emotional connection there that I don’t think I’ve had in a while.

The chance to work with Scott is a tremendous pleasure and I’m learning a lot  (Michael Koryta Quotes) Stephen King, by far, is the standard-bearer. I think anyone who writes suspense fiction and says that King isn’t an influence is either lying or being foolish. I read his book ‘On Writing’ before I read pretty much any of his fiction  (Michael Koryta Quotes) I started writing as soon as I started reading  (Michael Koryta Quotes) We understand tornadoes scientifically, but it still feels supernatural. The randomness makes it feel supernatural  (Michael Koryta Quotes) You should be writing for the love of the story, and when it comes time to return to the manuscript, everything else belongs behind a closed door  (Michael Koryta Quotes) You have only so many chances to tell stories. I didn’t want to be forever wedded to one form of storytelling when there are so many out there  (Michael Koryta Quotes) I think if you looked at the kind of ebb and flow of supernatural fiction and horror fiction, it does seem to be more popular in times when were hammered over the head daily with threats from all angles, very real threats  (Michael Koryta Quotes) What I love is the writing, it’s not having written. I like the process of it  (Michael Koryta Quotes) Horror and supernatural novels give you a lot of what you look for in a crime novel, just with a twist that was very fresh for me as a reader  (Michael Koryta Quotes) I’d worked at a small town newspaper, and I was thinking of all the strange stories that I had seen float through the newsroom in my time there that were dismissed as kind of amusing curiosities. Somehow from that I got to this idea of an eccentric alcoholic who built a lighthouse in the woods  (Michael Koryta Quotes)
