Billy Wells


I was controller for one of the world's largest architectural firms in Washington, DC and New York City. Although pursuing accounting as a career path, I have always had a great interest in creative writing. I have written more than 200 songs, writing both the music and/or lyrics and collaborating with numerous writers and musicians through the years. I signed 39 publishing agreements with a host of publishers and almost realized a cut on Vanessa Williams' "Sweetest Days" album; however, 39 times my dreams did not come to fruition. I have written many poems and short stories and one screenplay.

I love movies and had seen over 1,500 by the age of 13 when there was snow on 13 channels after midnight. I have always enjoyed horror and from an early age wrote numerous short stories in that genre. Some of those early stories are in my first book, Black As Night. I have just completed my eighth horror compilation entitled "Dead Things: A Collection of Horror."

My you tube videos have accumulated over 2,000,000 hits.

I read constantly and have rated over 400 books on Goodreads.

My favorite horror movies are Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, and the Evil Dead. My favorite movie of all time Is Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life with James Stewart. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Robert B. Parker , Clive Cusler, James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, Dean Koontz, Edgar Allen Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Lee Burke, Richard Matheson, Lee Child, Jak Ketchum, and Jack Kilborn/Konrath.
