I’m a normal guy, with an over-active imagination. Since a young age, I’ve been fascinated by ghosts, monsters, and other impossible or inexplicable things and this has led to a lifelong love of the horror genre.
Specifically, I’m interested in supernatural, psychological, and sometimes even cosmic horror. Though, I also have an affection for the 70’s and 80’s slasher movies that I grew up with. My stories almost always feature elements of the paranormal with varying degrees of darkness and terror, typically landing somewhere on the scale between The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Crypt.
I write because I want to. There’s something about the process of creating worlds and characters that I find exhilarating and rewarding. My goal isn’t to crank out books to turn a quick profit. I’ve already got a career separate from my writing that pays the bills but I feel I still need to exercise my creativity. After years of hard work, establishing my career and my family, I’m able to focus more of my energy on what I’m passionate about: terrifying entertaining people.
That’s not to say that I don’t promote my work. I do, every chance I get. The writing is only the first half of the equation. Creating rich, captivating worlds filled with vibrant characters doesn’t add up to much if nobody’s around to experience them. I want to get my work out to as many people as possible. Since I recently started working on my first full-length novel, I’ve started focusing more on the promotion of my writing. So, here we are.
So if, like me, you enjoy the occasional stroll through the weird, scary and intriguing, keep an eye out for my work. Or—even better—keep in touch and I’ll make sure you’re up to date on all the most recent developments. The “Contact” page at natecrow.com has everything you’d need to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
I’ll see you around,
