Microsoft Alumni Network publishes author profile and interview on “Old Hollow” May 5, 2018

Posted by ambrosestolliker in News.

While I wish it were the case that I could make a living writing horror fiction full time, I haven’t quite reached a point as an author where I can quit my day job.

That’s OK. Since graduating from university in the mid-1990s, I’ve had lots of jobs. Some good, some bad, and, luckily, a few really awesome ones. I was a newspaper reporter for a long time before moving into marketing and public relations in the technology industry.

One of the best places I ever worked was Microsoft. I had great experiences there, grew a lot as a writer and met some incredible people along the way. After my time at the company ended, I was able to join the Microsoft Alumni Association, which does a fantastic job of helping people move their careers forward, post-Microsoft.

Recently, an old reporter friend of mine, who just happened to land a gig at the Alumni Association, kindly reached out to me and asked if I’d be willing to do an interview about my fiction career in general and the February publication of my first book-length story, Old Hollow, courtesy of Radiant Crown Publishing.

Never one to turn down the opportunity to talk about myself, I didn’t hesitate to accept my old friend’s invitation. We had a great conversation about how I got my start in fiction writing, about the horror genre and, of course, my new novella.

So, without further ado, head on over to the Microsoft Alumni Network site and check out the profile and interview. It was a lot of fun to be a part of, and I want to thank my good friend, Becky Monk, for making it happen.
