Born, raised, and currently living in Oregon, Wesley McCraw writes speculative fiction. Right now he is focused on horror and sci-fi. Next, maybe it will be romantic, comedic fantasy.
Wes graduated from the University of Oregon, where he completed the much-acclaimed Kidd Tutorial, a one-year intensive writing clinic which he hated, partly because it threw out genre fiction in favor of literary fiction. During his time at the university, he was also a member of Write Club, where he trained under screenwriter Omar Naim (The Final Cut, Dead Awake).
Wes's first novel, The Forgiving, was based on a screenplay of the same name. He plans on adapting more of his screenplays in the future, including Brief Pose, the 2011 winner of the StoryPros screenplay competition in the sci-fi/fantasy/horror category.
Wes is now working on the second volume of the multi-installment epic, House of Cabal, and a book of Lovecraftian short stories entitled The Queen in Yellow.

The Ovum Horror
by Wesley McCraw
My bedroom door doesn't have a lock. I watch the doorknob from my bed, imagining the handle’s slow turn. I hug my knees and rock in sweat-drenched anxiety. On the other side of the door is a foul mist, and in that mist waits a yellow thing, a Grimm fairytale come to life.

Easily one of the best books of gay erotica I've read. I have a few issues that keep it from 5-stars for me, but definitely check it out for free. It's probably smarter and more thought provoking than the erotica you're usually reading.
