About this author

Brick Marlin has been writing since he was a child. From an early age he was exposed to older, original horror movies. The great ones that have made a mark in history.

Thanks for inquiring, Carl! If you like to read ebooks, please check out SECTORS. It's the start of a series I've begun. SECTORS is a dark world full of robots, werewolves , vampires, zombies, and a cannibal.

I am hoping to bring Twilight Zone type settings in the books. :)

RAISING RILEY and DARK PLACES OF REST are free to reads and I think I have included the links on my page. If you have trouble, let me know..

You can find my other books on AMAZON.COM, if you wish.

Take care,


mountainmama Thanks for the friend invite, Brick! Good looking books there. Who did your covers? They're awesome.
