A fan of all things dark and horrific, D.W. Gillespie has been writing horror, sci-fi, and fantasy for longer than he would like to admit. After years of daydreaming, he started taking it seriously in college after a creative writing class helped spark his motivation. After winning a local writing award, he realized that his path forward was clear. In the years since, he's been featured in many publications, both online and in print. He's the author of more than a dozen novels, including The Toy Thief, Still Dark, and Handmade Monsters. A lifelong native of Middle Tennessee, he still lives there today with his wife and two children.
