Meet the Author



MJ is an affiliate member of the Horror Writer's Association (HWA) and the author of several short stories, which have appeared both on-line and in print. He has also written freelance articles for a music website (dragstripcourage.com) for the past five years, on top of working in mid-town Manhattan in the music industry. In his free time, he enjoys reading, traveling and, of course, writing.

Born in Salem, Massachusetts, he was quick to embrace the dark past which existed there, using several of the town's more sinister areas as a backdrop for his writings. In The Rousseau House, for example, the chateau which is the main subject of the story is based on an actual decaying structure a few blocks away from where he lived. The saying "write what you know" is something that many writers hold true to their hearts and MJ is no exception to this rule. Once you open yourself to what's stirring inside you, anything is possible!
