Abandoned on the snow-covered, icy banks of the Ohio River, left there by a clan of otherworldly fiends who could no longer bear the incessant whining of the most unusual infant, Terry "Horns" Erwin was delivered on a dark and stormy and cold December night in the same month and year the Satanic Bible was first published..1969 (frightened yet?). Well, maybe it wasn't storming, and factually it was a nearby Cincinnati hospital, but for the purpose of sounding cooler he would like us to entertain it to be so. Born under the sign of the Goat, this rebellious soul started writing fiction at an early age. His very first short story "The Sad Dragon", written in the wild, jungle gym confines of primary school, won a prestigious blue ribbon award and infected him with the proverbial bug he’d later in life come to discover had burrowed deep within the core of his brain and cocooned there, waiting to mature and eventually claw out in one fierce, gore-splattered evening in 1999. By then the monstrous creature of sinister creativity had grown and become a thing of unstoppable, dark ideas that continues to this day to spew its horror on the written page. Feasting over the long years on a steady diet of horror books, slasher films, and metal music, it's no wonder the content of the beast within has led him to pen some of the creepiest, most shocking tales known to mankind.
