About the Author

Sean Walter lives on the west coast of the United States, in the rainy city of Portland, Oregon. He’s been writing about all things strange and twisted as a hobby since he was eight years old, and professionally for the last decade or so. The myriad of jobs he’s had in his life, from manual labour jobs to EMT, bartender to bodyguard, lend realism and experience to his dark stories.

About the Illustrator

Karen Ruffles lives in Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast, a perfect location for an artist with a love for the gothic side of horror. She specialises in charcoal and carbon pencil drawings, covering a wide range of subjects but her first love is the monsters who wander into her studio and in some cases, take up permanent residence.
