The Pious Insurrection

I used to suffer from recurring sleep paralysis nightmares in which I had several vivid, visual encounters with shadow people, shadow children, and something I later recognized as a common phenomenon: a dark, slender man with jagged movements.

Online research showed me that I wasn't the only one who had these experiences. Other people saw this figure, too. Amazing, right?!

I took what I'd learned, and I wrote "The Slender Man," incorporating all of those actual nightmares into the horror. I mixed the physical, visual, and audible sensations with the lore of kidnappings, blurred images, impalement, and stalking.

While my writing has strongly evolved since then (I was 17 when I wrote that), it's still my most popular story.
