Every summer as kids, we would host one group of cousins or another and jump off hay bales, create mazes by crawling the patterns through the tall grass, and steal green apples out of the garden. We also branded calves, killed chickens, and stole steak knives to threaten skunks with. But that's growing up on a farm for you.
Now I write fantasy, science fiction, and horror--and most of it comes from the worlds that I created as a farm kid, one way or another.
My first novel, Choose Your Doom: Zombie Apocalypse, was published by Doom Press in 2010 and can be purchased through Meta Geek.
"This is how I like my zombies: fast and funny. Choose this book, and you won't be choosing your doom. You'll be choosing hours of gooey, gory hilarity."
- Steve Hockensmith, New York Times best-selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls
My short story, “The End of the World,” about fairies on the Great Plains, received an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 3.
I also write murder-mystery party games for Freeform Games in the UK.

Take a little girl who can change the world with her dreams, a screwed up family, a countryside of farmers being overrun by demons and you’ve got Chance Damnation by Deanna Knippling.
Nine year old Jerome knows that his friend, the frail little girl, Celeste Marie, is someone special. He also knows the demons that destroyed the church on Gray Hill are out to get her, so when his older brothers and the rest of the town decide to go after the demons, he knows it’s more important to keep Celeste Marie safe. When things go bad, it takes Jerome to enter the demon caverns and his cranky older brother, Aloysius, left topside, to deal with the demons factions who are taking over the community, and to find Celeste Marie and wake her up. Who knew such powerful dreams could come from such a little kid. Nightmares, I mean. A wickedly weird read.

One great imaginative piece of bizarreness after another! If you're looking for something to make you wonder, you've found it. From beginning to end, you'll be surprised at what Ms Knippling's fertile imagination has come up with this time.
