In brief (scroll down for more): Feind is a metal loving, horror freak turned horror writer. Feind spent nearly 40 years devouring heavy metal, horror books & movies before ever laying a single word on the page. All of that plus a whole lot more makes his writing what it is today. It's amazing what selling your soul to Satan can do for you! Pleasant nightmares!

A Little More...
So you have the basics but want to know a little more? Nosy little fucker aren't ya? I'm just kidding, you should know now that I'm a sarcastic bastard so if you offend easily... you're in the wrong place! Now I'm no "spring chicken" as those older than me would say but I like to think you're only as old as you feel so depending on the day my body may tell me I'm 111 or 25, it's an exciting game we play every morning when I get out of bed. Mentally I'm probably somewhere around 15 years old plus or minus a week, I don't know, but it's somewhere in that ballpark. I am a lifelong metalhead. While others my age were listening to The Police or Genesis (in the late 70s/early 80s) I was already getting firmly attached to AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Ozzy and Iron Maiden, among others. I have only gotten into more extreme music as I've gotten older and I see no signs of that slowing down. Why does that matter you may be asking? Well, it's because everything I write or will ever write is inspired by the music I hold so dear. Every story I write shares a title with the song or album that inspired it. It's my little way of paying homage to the music that has given so much to me. My stories are littered with little nods to heavy music and the artists who create it though if I told you none of this you would likely never know and that's the way I like it. Then there is the horror fan in me that festered and fermented for decades before I began writing. I freely admit that my first feeling of terror was The Wicked Witch of the West in Wizard of Oz. When I was very little I would hide every time she was on screen which, of course, my two older sisters delighted in both making fun of me for and tormenting me with. The next bane of my existence was The Amityville Horror, the 1979 version, which scared the living daylights out of me until I forced myself to watch it, mainly so that my oldest sister could no longer torment me with it. I was maybe 8 or 9 years old at the time. Soon after I saw Phantasm, a movie I still love, and then another and another until I couldn't get enough. I love horror though the problem with having seen and read so much is that pretty much nothing can scare me anymore. The last time I remember actually being scared by a movie was the original Nightmare On Elm Street, specifically the scene when Nancy falls asleep in class and follows a bloody body bag to the basement. Now when I see a good kill or a really well done creepy scene I smile or even laugh, that's how much I love it. I didn't begin writing until I was nearly 40 so all those years of metal and horror movies and the thousands of books (of all genres) I've read are the inspiration behind what I write. The way I write and how I write is not going to be for everyone, I know this and I don't care. While I do not shun success, commercial success I'm talking about, I don't actively seek it out. If it happens, it happens and it is mostly beyond my control. I write horror as a horror fan for horror fans. If you're a horror fan I hope you enjoy what I do. If not that's okay. So I hope you enjoy the stories I've written, the ones coming you haven't seen yet and those that are yet to be set down on the page. I will do my best to entertain you here and with everything that I'm lucky enough to have published.
Please enjoy and remember the nightmares are always free!
