Richard Raven


Richard Raven, who also writes under the name Jackson Sullivan, embraced horror in all forms at an early age. An avid reader, he is a fan of such writers as Stephen King, James Herbert, Clive Barker, John Everson, Edward Lee, and many others. He writes simple ghost stories, tales of hard-edged and blood-drenched horror, and murder mysteries, going to whatever dark place the inspiration takes him, so his readers are never quite sure what to expect from him.
Richard lives in the southern U.S, not far from a home that has an old tombstone (an actual grave) in the front yard, and along a stretch of highway well known among the many motorcycle enthusiasts who ride it each year. He revels in the legends and ghost stories that abound in his part of the world, all of which fuels his overactive imagination, and he leaves to his readers to decide if that is a good thing or not.
