Hal Rappaport

I currently live in New Jersey, in a small town just north of Princeton. I grew up in Philadelphia. I guess I've been writing stories since I was about 11 or 12. I loved the idea of being able to transport someone to another place, or to create my own. I've always been into technology. I've worked in the field for almost 25 years. I wrote for the Syfy Channel’s technology site, DVICE and several of my articles were picked up by NBC (NBC Universal owns the Syfy Channel). I have regular articles that are science fiction inspired, but about REAL technology. It’s been my passion to incorporate something real from fiction. In the case of my book, it’s incorporating something real INTO the fiction. Before any of the Syfy channel stuff, way back in the early days before Facebook and before Blogs, I created a web site for Horror themes called, Frightscape.com. It’s still in existence in it’s very primitive form. Anyway, I decided to write an article for my own site about one of the scariest places I had ever been. It was a haunted attraction that had existed in the 1970’s and 80’s. It was called, Brigantine Castle. It was gigantic. It was five stories tall with over 80 live actors. Through the early search facilities of the web, I found a few of the original cast and got them together using a yahoo group (They still use it). It gave me a unique opportunity to interview them and to write some great stuff about the place, with a lot of their pictures and even some sound recordings. The editor of Haunted Attractions magazine read my web site and asked me to write one for him. It was my first professional writing. I've written a few more articles for Haunted Attractions Magazine since then, along with a few other industry publications.
