David C. Cassidy
Award-winning author David C. Cassidy is the twisted mind behind three best-selling novels of horror and suspense: Velvet Rain, The Dark, and Fosgate’s Game. I have to admit it: I love dark novels with a strong ambiance of horror. So I always relish the opportunity to read David’s latest offering. David is a talented author with a rare ability to bring horror to life in his fiction.
But I think David’s own words do a better job of describing him than I can, so here they are . . .
An author, photographer, and graphic designer – and a half-decent juggler – David spends his writing life creating tales of terror where bad things happen to good people. Raised by wolves, he grew up with a love of nature, music, science, and history, with thrillers and horror novels feeding the dark side of his seriously disturbed imagination. He talks to his characters, talks often, and most times they listen. But the real fun starts when they tell him to take a hike . . . and they Open That Door anyway. Idiots.
David lives in Ontario, Canada. From Mozart to Vivaldi, classic jazz to classic rock, he feels naked without his iPod. Suffering from MAD – Multiple Activity Disorder – he divides his time between writing and blogging, photography and Photoshop, reading and rollerblading. An avid amateur astronomer, he loves the night sky, chasing the stars with his telescope. Sometimes he eats.
“I just wanted to thank you again for the terrific job you did on my evaluation. I went over the manuscript with a much finer eye (yours, actually) and made the appropriate edits. They have made a good manuscript great, and I have you to thank for it. Thank you so much for giving me that push to take it to another level. I really appreciate it.”
