Lee Allen Howard
Lee Allen Howard knew since second grade he wanted to be a horror writer. He loved all things creepy and was terrorized by a recurring nightmare in which Dracula, the Wolfman, and the Mummy chased him all around the house. This led to telling stories on the dark side of reality.
Since then, he’s written five novels—The Covenant Sacrifice, The Bedwetter: Journal of a Budding Psychopath, Death Perception, The Adamson Family, The Sixth Seed—and a collection of early short stories, Perpetual Nightmares. His dark fiction spans the genres of horror, LGBTQ horror, dark mystery, supernatural crime, and psychological thrillers.
Howard earned his BA in English from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. He’s been a professional writer and publishing system administrator in the software industry since 1985 and also edits dark fiction.
Howard is the founder and editor at Dark Cloud Press, publisher of the horror and dark crime anthologies Thou Shalt Not... and Tales of Blood and Squalor. An active member of the Horror Writers Association, he resides in western New York with a ton of books.
