He won his second Bram Stoker Award for his newsletter and his third for his poetry collection, Freakcidents. He currently holds four Bram Stoker Awards and an International Horror Guild Award for his disturbing (and often funny) fiction, poetry and literary experiments.

Jill Yeomans earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and Creative Writing at the University of Michigan, where she received the prestigious Arthur Miller Award for Fiction in the Avery Hopwood Awards. She was a children’s book editor at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers—working with authors including Stephenie Meyer, Jerry Pinkney, and Patrick Carman—before embarking on a writing career. She has ghostwritten nearly a dozen books for teens and adults and co-wrote the bestselling Witch & Wizard series with James Patterson. Under the pseudonym Devon Hughes, she wrote Unnaturals, a middle grade fantasy series, for HarperCollins. She also co-owns White Whale, an independent bookstore in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
