Scott Hale has always been obsessed with all things horror. While it's not uncommon for his writings to blend multiple genres together, Horror is ever-present, be it in the scenarios themselves, or the uncomfortable truths he dares to explore.

Scott is the demented mastermind behind The Bones of the Earth series. Six books and four years later, the series has come to an end, but his addiction to writing has not. With more books on the way (In Sheep's Skin, The Body is a Cruel Mistress, and Sickness in the Stars), it won't be long until you're invited to explore his grotesque, imaginative, and oddly beautiful worlds.

Scott is married to his wife, Hannah - his muse, frequent collaborator, and illustrator for his work. He has a masters in Social

Of course, I broke her down and saw it in theaters, but it was a long process. Event Horizon was another movie which I'd seen alone, then she watched it finally and forbid me from viewing it ever again. Of course, that made me only want to watch that much more.

Granted, I was ten when these movies came out, so ... I guess I can see where she was coming from :)(less)

It is a post-apocalyptic fantasy/horror novel that follows a young woman by the name Vrana. She belongs to a tribe of people who hunt the Corrupted, which are none other than the remnants of humanity after an apocalyptic event known as the Trauma. Vrana finds herself involved with not only a sadistic Witch that haunts her dreams and threatens the safety of her village, but the fate of a Corrupted city in the north, where ten thousand humans have gone missing over night. I aim to have this released by Spring of 2015.

I am also working on the novel's follow-up, which is entitled "Three Heretics."

The universe in which "Bones" and "Heretics" takes place is shared between all my works. I will also be releasing an anthology of horror short stories and novellas entitled "Black Occult Macabre Volume 1." These short stories and novellas take place prior to "Bones" and the Trauma ; not only are they interconnected, but they are connected to "Bones" as well. The cool thing is, however, you don't need to read "Bones" or "Occult" to understand the other.

Lastly, my brother and I are collaborating on a Friday the 13th screenplay. It's more of a fun project than anything else, but you never know ;)

The Making of In Sheep’s Skin Part III



The Making of In Sheep’s Skin





Part Three (Plot (Part I))
