1). Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a semi woke guy who writes stories with a little bit of historical awareness and lots of action. I write novels, comics and screenplays. I go to the movies every week when I’m not at a comic convention. I started making micro budget horror movies and now I cross my stories into each medium.

2). Who is your favorite vampire author?

LA Banks is my favorite vampire author. I love her Huntress series. It was a beautiful mix of Hip Hop and paranormal elements. I met her a few times and still have an email she sent me.

3). If you had the choice, would you be a vampire?

I would if it was the type of vampire in one of my stories. Some vampires can’t control their animalist craves and others are deformed. My vampires are a mixture but, most are like Blade.

4). Who is your favorite vampire?

I’ll exclude the vampire in my story so, that leaves Blade. I like him because he is a badass but, also because he can control himself.

5). What do you like the most about Slay?

I love that is brings together Black writers and gives them a platform. I am looking forward to reading the other stories. Slay was a challenge for me because the only vampires I had in my stories were villains. It was fun creating a story were they weren’t monsters.

6). What inspired you to write your story?

I had written a Fan Fiction comic strip spoofing Tracey Morgan’s The Last OG. The idea I had was too good for it to be limited to just a comic strip that I couldn’t put out.

7). Tell us a bit about your story.

My story is about a vampire who awakes after a 100 year sleep.

8). What do you hope accomplish with your story?

I really enjoyed writing and creating my character and story world. I would really like to continues the story in a comic book and a novel with fan support.

9). Will there be more stories of your character?

I hope so. I don’t know.

10). How do we keep up with all things Jeff Carroll?

My books are found on my Amazon Author page. I do not have a website. I am very active on Facebook under my name. I have a Youtube page that needs subscribers it is RBGPromotions.

11). What advice would you give to Slay readers about this anthology?

For everyone reading this book enjoy it and open your mind to all of the different imagined universes that these Black writers created. Support their other works and if you find a story or a few stories that you like suggest them to television and cartoon producers. If you like what you read and you are a real fan of vampires and Black paranormal stories then promote these types of projects and the authors in it.
