In my previous post, I discussed the authors who influenced and inspired me during my formative years, well now, I want to tell you about the authors whose works encourage me today. These are just a few of the authors, who continue to astound:
Andrew J McKiernan – Mr McKiernan is an extremely talented author and artist. His stories really hit home and carry considerable emotional weight. I look forward to his collection, Last Year, When We Were Young coming out later this year from Satalyte Publishing.
Lisa Morton – Lisa Morton is the expert on Halloween, but her fiction is also masterful. I highly recommend her books, Hell Manor, Wild Girls and her collection Monsters of L.A. as a good place to start.
Brett McBean – Brett McBean is one of the rising stars of horror in Australia. Find his books, The Mother, The Awakening, his Jungle series and you’ll never look back! He also recently co-authored the Wolf Creek 2 tie-in novel, Desolation Game.
Martin Livings – This Perth-based author is a pleasure to read, particularly his collection, Living With the Dead. His tale, Birthday Suit, will leave you feeling ill at ease for a long while after you’ve finished reading.
These are just a few of the authors have left their mark on me. I’d Would love to know which authors inspire you.
