Meet the Author

"Horror used to terrify me. Some of that Asian stuff still does. I’ll never watch The Ring again…" Ever the non conformist…his first book, Absolom Rex, he decided to publish as an e-book and see if he could market it himself. So on top of being a writer, he is also an entrepreneur and marketing professional. It makes for a confusing description when people ask him what he does. In addition to his horror novels, K.L. also writes the Darkwater Adventures Guild series for young readers. Some of his favorite authors from growing up are John Bellairs, Mark Twain, Washington Irving and R.A. Salvatore. "The first book I ever read cover to cover was Spell of the Sorcerers Skull by John Bellairs in JR High." From a small Texas town, K.L. spent some time living in Los Angeles. His welcome, a white knuckle 19 hour ride through deserted deserts and twisting mountain roads ending in a 4 am slash and burn through traffic on the 10 with cars everywhere. While in L.A. he braved the Devil’s Punchbowl with stalwarts mates, drove out to the middle of nowhere to watch the stars fall from the sky, relearned to drive stick (yeah, in the middle of L.A., so now you know he is insane…) and resumed training in the martial arts. A surfer, he has felt the zen that comes from hanging ten all day and he has played the part of the pesky reporter when he wrote for a local Halloween haunt blog called, CreepyLA.com. He currently contributes short stories for Darkmediacity.com's #Fridayfrights and flashfriday.org's #fridayflash. "I really missed the old gothic story telling and I want to bring it back. I would describe my writing style as a cross between Mark Twain and Edgar Allen Poe…" He has since moved back to Texas with his dog Sid (at least for the time being). He’s an 80's movie and music lover and the thing that he likes most about a woman is her voice… When not banging away on a keyboard he’s scheming of ways to get himself to a new campsite for the weekend, hiking with friends and his dog, contributing to darkmediacity.com,or getting thrown around in a dojo by people in black suits. Oh, and a large telescope just arrived in the mail, bigger is better...

The stories were very interesting, but there were about a hundred misused or misspelled words. For crying out loud find a reliable, intelligent proofreader ant FIX the annoying errors. Forcing myself to correct all the glaring goofs in my mind, I enjoyed the dark stories and would like to read more from this author IF he can write with a better grasp of the English language.

A good read, but the spelling & grammar were that of a four year old. Everything has spell check so iam unsure of how this disaster happened; but nonetheless, i enjoyed the story

I thought it was a great book. Took me by complete surprise when it went with the vampire angle though! Such a cool idea to make someone from Christian history into an evil being!! Ready to buy the next one!

I really enjoyed this story of Absolom Rex. This could be a great series. He's such a different kind of vampire.
