Thriller-writer Carter Wilson was born in New Mexico and grew up in Los Angeles before attending school at Cornell University. He has journeyed the globe both for work and pleasure, and his travels to Jerusalem were the inspiration behind FINAL CROSSING, which was released in June 2012 by Vantage Point Books. Carter is represented by Pamela Ahearn of the Ahearn Agency and is a member of the International Thriller Writer’s organization. He currently lives in a spooky Victorian house in Colorado with his two children. Carter’s second novel, THE BOY IN THE WOODS, was released June 2014 by Severn House.
THE COMFORT OF BLACK
has received rave reviews, with a stellar review in Publisher’s Weekly.
Born in West Virginia and raised in Kentucky, Sean Eads finally found his home when he moved to Colorado in 1999. He is a reference librarian at the Standley Lake Public Library in Arvada.
Writing seriously since he was fourteen years old, Sean’s first success was winning an NEH grant as an undergraduate at the University of Kentucky for literary criticism on the role of mesmerism in Henry James’s The Bostonians. Convinced he was on the verge of a breakthrough in his writing career, the next two decades proved him very wrong. But he kept at it, and started seeing some success in his late thirties. His first novel, The Survivors, was a finalist for the 2013 Lambda Literary Award. His next novel, Lord Byron’s Prophecy, will be published this October. His writing has appeared in various other places, including The Journal of Popular Culture, Shock Totem, and anthologies like Zombies: Shambling Through the Ages.
Sean’s passion, aside from writing, is golf. His favorite writers include Hemingway, Bradbury, and Faulkner. In 1997, he spent two minutes sitting in Old Sparky, the electric chair at the Kentucky State Penitentiary, just a few weeks after its last current use. He credits the experience with adding an extra jolt to his sentences.
LORD BYRON’S PROPHECY
is a dark, apocalyptic fantasy for the modern age. A must read for 2015.
