I’m a husband and father of three young boys based in Northwestern Ontario, Canada. Since first reading R.L. Stein and Christopher Pike when I was young, I have been invested in the horror genre. After a lifetime of enjoying horror in all its forms, I decided to attempt to contribute my own stories and after a few years of work, I now proudly call myself a novice horror writer. I have my first short story pending publication with Ghost Orchid Press, and I have received an Ontario Arts Council grant to support my effort to produce a short story collection. I also review films for Thunder Bay’s Terror in the Bay Film Festival. I’m interested in reviewing new horror writing as a way to help support other novice writers and learn a thing or two.
All-time Favorite Horror Books:
Robert Chambers, The King in Yellow
Clive Barker, The Damnation Game
William Peter Blatty, Legion
Daphne du Maurier, Jamaica Inn
Iain Banks, The Wasp Factory
Dan Simmons, The Terror
Joe Hill, Horns
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale
Robert R. MaCammon, Boy’s Life
Catriona Ward, Sundial
…and if I had to pick only one Stephen King book, it’d be Night Shift.
