Ty Johnston was born in Kentucky. After earning a degree in journalism, he spent the next two decades as a newspaper editor. During that time he wrote numerous short stories, nearly all of which have been published in print or digital formats. In his forties, now a former journalist, he decided it was time to get serious about his fiction writing. He is the author of The Kobalos Trilogy of epic fantasy novels, City of Rogues, Road to Wrath and Dark King of the North. He has been published online at Every Day Fiction, Demonic Tome, The Ranfurly Review, Flashes in the Dark and other venues. His stories have also appeared in print in the anthologies "Deadlines," "The Return of the Sword" and "Demons: A Clash of Steel Anthology." Ty's main writing and reading interests generally are in the horror and fantasy genres, but he's not above branching out into literary works from time to time.
