Author Bio

Lawrence Dagstine is a 48-year-old writer born and raised in the Big Apple. He studied journalism and creative writing in the 1990s, and is workshop-certified in proofreading. His work is available on Amazon, Nook, Smashwords, Apple, Kobo, and in a variety of other formats. He is best known for his small press stories—publication in a plethora of science fiction, fantasy, and horror magazines during the 2000s (what he affectionately labels the Millennial Pulps, before digital became mainstream). He mostly talks about video games and comic books these days, and offers affordable proofreading services. He is the author of a handful of ebook novelettes and novellas (including A Child Weeps in Moscow). He has been published with companies such as Damnation Books, Dark Owl Publishing, and Steampunk Tales, and he is the author of two novels and two out-of-print collections: Death of the Common Writer (out of print), Fresh Blood (out of print), and the as-of-yet-to-be-announced, From The Depths (co-authored with illustrator Bob Veon). He enjoys The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, collecting action figures, and gaming. He also enjoys drawing in his spare time. Reach him on social media platforms such as Twitter at:
