Background Information

Hello. Welcome! I am a published author of short horror fiction. I have published in various horror magazines around the country such as: Bloodreams, Nightmares, Sci-Fant, Funerary Journal. I have finished my first novel, 'Nesters,' and I’m now submitting to publishing houses. I have begun my second Novel and have other short fiction in various stages of completion. I am a member of the "Horror Writers' Association." Good people! My favorite month, of course, is October when nameless things skulk in the furtive shadows of darkness. I’m also an avid horror fan. As a child I spent every Friday and Saturday night watching the 'B' sci-fi and horror movies. I couldn’t get enough of the Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Classic Horror Films. In my younger adult life, I worked as one of the 'Living Dead' rising from the graves of one of the largest horror theme parks in the country, Spooky World. A long time ago I began to read novels by some guy in Maine. And that was the start of my writing career. At first my writing was a therapy, to unwind after my nine-to-five. After my first short fiction sale, I knew I could be successful using my creative side. Due to some personal troubles I went away from the craft for a time. But now... I have been, once again, inspired to write by the warm and wonderful support and encouragement from folks I’ve met in the "Horror Writers’ Association." I live in an old house in Shrewsbury, MA, built around 1830. Yes, there are noises. Mostly creaks and groans. But it’s the unnerving footsteps ascending the stairs that bother me, and the shapeless forms I glimpse in the corner of my eye. I am married to a beautiful gal from Baton Rouge, LA., - Mandy - and have two wonderful and supportive daughters, Kay and Amy, from my first marriage. And I have a Shih Tzu named Norman. His name is Norman (Bates) because he’s such a little psycho. But good company. Some Of My Favorite Writers... I read the best out there: Stephen King, Peter Straub, Clive Barker, Douglas Clegg, Jack Ketchum, Brian Keene, Tim Lebbon, Tom Monteleone, Diana Barron, Marcy Italiano, Chris Golden and more. Feel free to read one of my short stories or write to me... Dennis
