My family and I have lived all over the place, and we're currently stationed in the Washington, DC area.
When I'm not out fighting for Truth, Justice, and the American Way, he writeste, and is particularly proud of Dolly,his first novel, due to be published by Bad Moon Books in the Fall of 2013. His second finished novel, Hell or High Water, looks like it will be his first published novel as it will be published by Blood Bound Books in late Spring/early Summer of 2013.
He also has a standalone novella available from Sam's Dot Publishing. It's called Family Tradition, and no, it's got nothing to do with the Hank Williams, Jr. song (but if someone wants to purchase the movie rights, I think that'd make one hell of a good addition to the soundtrack. Just sayin'.). It's actually a charming little story about a family of north Georgia cannibals.

Richard currently lives with his wife in Lavale, MD. When he's not spinning tales of terror he can be found in his wood shop making messes.

Adam Nevill, is a writer who first came to my attention, by judging a book by it's cover. By sheer chance I noticed the cover to Banquet of The Damned had a picture of the ruined St Andrews Cathedral. Coming from St Andrews I love to read books that are set in my hometown. Thankfully the book did live up to the cover, and since then i have had a fabulous time reading Adam's work. Adam has a rare gift for writing horror, a gift that transforms his books from horror stories, to truely upsetting and unnerving tales that will chill you to the pit of your very soul.
