Guest Writer #2: Thomas M. Malafarina

Welcome, readers – to the second in a series of posts called “Guest Writers” – featuring writers from around the world.

Today it’s my privilege to welcome Thomas M. Malafarina , a writer from the USA!

Thomas will tell you more about himself and his writing in his own words!

My name is Thomas M. Malafarina ( I am an author of horror fiction from Berks County, Pennsylvania, USA. To date, I have published seven horror novels  “What Waits Beneath”, “Burner”, “From The Dark” , “Circle Of Blood”,  “Dead Kill Book 1: The Ridge of Death”, “Dead Kill Book 2: The Ridge Of Change” and “Dead Kill Book 3: The Ridge Of War”. I have also published seven collections of horror short stories: “Thirteen Deadly Endings”, “Ghost Shadows”, “Undead Living” “Malaformed Realities Vol. 1, Vol. 2 and Vol. 3” and most recently “Horror Classics”. In addition, I have published a book of often-strange single panel cartoons called “Yes I Smelled It Too; Cartoons For The Slightly Off Center”.

In addition, many of my stories have appeared in anthologies and e-magazines. Some have been produced and presented for internet podcasts and radio plays as well. I’ve proudly shared anthology pages with some of the biggest names in horror fiction such as Jack Ketchum, Joe Lansdale, Jonathan Maberry and Luck McKee to name a few.

I suppose I am best known for the twists and surprises in my stories as well as my descriptive, often gory passages. I am a part-time author and full time Advanced Computer Aided Manufacturing Engineering Manager. I am also an amateur artist, musician, singer and songwriter. A native of Ashland, Pennsylvania, I live in Western Berks County, Pennsylvania along with my wife JoAnne.
