Jason Arnopp is the author of the Orbit Books novel The Last Days Of Jack Sparks, which is currently being developed as a feature film at Imagine Entertainment, the Hollywood production company co-founded by director Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon, The Da Vinci Code).
The Last Days Of Jack Sparks has been described as a magnificent millennial nightmare (Alan Moore), scarier than watching The Exorcist in an abandoned asylum (Sarah Lotz) and The Omen for the social media age (Christopher Brookmyre).
While you wait for Arnopp's next novel, why not check out his four shorter-form fiction titles? These are Beast In The Basement (a suspenseful, mind-blowing thriller novella), A Sincere Warning About The Entity In Your Home (a chilling and groundbreaking short story set in YOUR home), Auto Rewind (a dark, emotionally charged thriller) and the free short story American Hoarder (a supernatural creep-fest available only at JasonArnopp.com.)
Arnopp previously wrote and executive-produced the Lionsgate feature film Stormhouse and script-edited the Peter Mullan feature The Man Inside. He has also written for the worlds of Doctor Who (BBC), The Sarah Jane Adventures (BBC) and Friday The 13th (New Line Cinema).
In his past life as a rock journalist, he interviewed the likes of Bon Jovi, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and Guns N' Roses. He was once surrounded by angry guards holding semi-automatic weapons at The Vatican. His Slipknot biography, Slipknot: Inside The Sickness, Behind The Masks, was released in 2001 and is now available as a Kindle Edition. Arnopp has also written a guide to journalistic interviewing, entitled How To Interview Doctor Who, Ozzy Osbourne And Everyone Else, which is also out on Kindle.
Arnopp's latest non-fiction book is From The Front Lines Of Rock. Available in the Kindle Store now, it gathers 30 of the finest interviews he wrote as a rock journalist, with the likes of Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Korn, Kiss, Faith No More, Garbage, Nine Inch Nails and Green Day.
