AUTHOR BIO: Growing up on stories and legends told by a several relatives who were equally interested in the paranormal and then later finding H.P. Lovecraft among other greats, Chris Cirillo (That’s Me) has always been a imaginative individual, whether it was through story writing or drawing (Lot’s of drawings: which can be found at crazon.deviantart.com), Chris has been in the world building business all his life. Characters, monsters and whole galaxies worth of worlds lie both on pages of paper, in digital form and in his mind. (Seriously, it’s getting crowded in there!) With a family and group of friends to both inspire and support his creativity, Chris likes to delve into many related and intertwined genres: horror, fantasy, science fiction and everything in between. He’s currently attempting to write Simcoe County, Ontario into a new Miskatonic valley (Ok, I’ll stop with the third person perspective now).
