Rob E. Boley likes to make blank pages darker. He lives with his wife and his daughter in Dayton, Ohio. By day, he manages and analyzes big data. Yet each morning before sunrise, he rises to strike terror into the hearts of the unfortunate characters dwelling in his novels, stories, and poems. His fiction has been seen lurking in places such as A cappella Zoo, Pseudopod, Clackamas Literary Review, and Best New Werewolf Tales. His poetry has been known to prowl in publications such as Wild Goose Poetry Review, California Quarterly, Horror Writers’ Association Poetry Showcase, and Undead: A Poetry Anthology of Ghosts and Ghouls. He co-founded Howling Unicorn Press with his wife, author Megan Hart, to conjure tales that thrill, chill, and fulf ...more

I've sent Book Four to some trusted readers. I'm doing edits and rewrites on Books Five and Six, and the final three books are yet to be written. Exciting times!(less)

Hi, Ken. Thanks for your questions.

Glad you liked that story. That's a great book, and I was thrilled to have my story in such amazing company!

Q1: If memory serves, I saw a general call for submissions for Best New Werewolf Tales, probably on a site like http://www.darkmarkets.com/ or http://horrortree.com/. Both are great resources for finding horror markets. I submitted the story (after it went through much editing, of course) following whatever directions they called for. Simple as that!

Q2: I had already written Stink of Animosity before Best New Werewolf Tales. In fact, it had been rejected a handful of times by some other great markets. That's how it goes. You can have a great story, but it has to find the right editor's desk at the right time.

Incidentally, that story was later adapted by the amazing team at Pseudopod in audio format. If you'd like to listen, here's the link:

Again, thanks! Hope this helps.(less)

HARD TIMES is a deeply engrossing novel. Edgerton uses a sparse voice to drive this gritty story through a variety of tense, emotional scenes. I cared about the characters who all felt and sounded real--particularly the protagonist Amelia, who endure ...more
