Henk Wester was born in South Africa. From a very young age, he was obsessed with horror books and horror movies. He started writing when he was seven years old, and the content of his work already disturbed his parents, teachers, and friends. That did not dissuade him from writing, and over the years, his work just got darker. Other than horror fiction, Henk is also a big animal and nature lover who enjoys spending time in solitude. Currently, he is studying towards obtaining his PhD in Educational Management and Leadership.
