Darryl Dawson


I was born in L.A. and raised, along with my big brother, in a lovely suburb called Harbor City by a wonderful pair of teachers that I still call Mom and Dad. I watched reruns of Night Gallery as a kid, and that helped develop my taste for the bizarre.

I write because it's easier than speaking. Most people who know me know that hearing me speak at length about anything is as unlikely as Apple going broke. Having the gift to put my thoughts down on paper (or WordPad) and turn them into wild, terrifying stories is a wonderful gift, and I don't know what I would be or do if I hadn't found that gift.

I write horror because the dark places are more fun. Horror is my fifth limb, an inseperable part of me that may make me appear to most as a freak, but feels perfectly natural.

"The Crawlspace" is my first book, and the first to be published under the FEAR OF SLEEP banner. I currently survive in Phoenix, Arizona.
