J.R. McLemore began writing horror fiction. After reading more diverse genres, he developed a propensity for hard-boiled crime stories and southern Gothic. Although he still turns out the occasional horror story, he is busy working on a crime novel and a southern Gothic novel. He lives in Rome, Georgia with his wife and daughter and works as a computer programmer during the day. Learn more at http://www.jrmclemore.com.
