I’m no different than anyone with a burning need to write. My motto has always been ‘Never Give Up’. In fact, I tattooed it on my arm just in case I somehow forget it.
For almost a decade, I’ve written in multiple genres, from children’s books to thrillers, many under my pen name, Hunter Shea. I’ve published books with Random House, Kensington Publishing, Amazon, Severed Press, Sinister Grin Press and Samhain books, my first novel selected to be part of their premier horror line in 2011. My books have gotten wonderful reviews and praise from The New York Ties, Publisher’s Weekly, RT Times, Horror Novel Reviews and so many more.
The legendary R.L. Stine once told me to never say no when opportunities come along. The man was so right, it gives me Goosebumps (I know, groan!) when I think of all the great things that single piece of advice has brought me. I’ve been an editor not just for books, but industry magazines, proofreader, website content designer, copywriter and just about anything you can think of when it comes to the published word.
I’m a husband, father, cat owner, big time reader, podcaster, craft and cheap beer lover, and general goofball. Life is all about having fun. Writing is hard, but it’s also fun!
Like you, I’ve been in the trenches, dreaming big dreams, facing disappointments, wondering why the heck I’m not out with my friends at the beach or have no clue what incredibly popular TV show everyone is talking about.
My goal is to help you learn from my mistakes, inspire you, point you in the right direction and do everything I can to get your book out there for the world to read.
