I grew up in Iowa but I love back-packing in the Rocky Mountain wilderness. I lived in Colorado during the eighties. I had a few ups and downs out there and those life experiences gave me a lot of inspiration for great horror, supernatural and literary stories. The Demon gathering was inspired by a woman I loved out there. She wrongfully died a few years ago on Valentines day. I'll always be sorry I wasn't there for her. The Demon gathering is dedicated to Amory's spirit. She was an angel and probably is one right now.
