**Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, 
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
Tis some visitor, I muttered, tapping at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more.**

Hello, my Darklings. I'm The-Dark-One. I focus writing in the Horror, Vampire, and Paranormal Genres. I do write a bit of everything, though. I write dark novels that border on sick and perverse, and sometimes, I cross the threshold at full speed with no hesitation. I like pushing the limits and writing what other's won't dare attempt. I'm not afraid to walk outside the boundaries. I fully believe that if you're going to write Horror then you should completely exit your safety zone and go where no writer has gone before. I do write books that are loaded with triggers, Mature content that some won't be able to stomach. So beware.

My passion for writing has really allowed me to escape reality and that's what I aspire to do for all of you that follow me. I try to write stories as I see in my mind's eye - like a movie reel - with as much detail as I possibly can. I write simply because I enjoy it. I love the feeling it instills in me when I'm so wrapped up in my own world that I have forgotten to eat, or I've been up all night getting lost in a world full of Vampire's, Dark Elves, Djinn, Witches, and Serial Killers.

If you're reading a Novel of mine and it has you biting your nails in suspense or up all night until you finish it, then I have successfully accomplished what I set out to do; entertain you with thought provoking questions. I'm still honing my craft, I know that if I set my mind to it - I will continue to advance in my skills as long as I keep fighting and never give up on my dream of becoming a published Author.
