is an author of fiction and nonfiction whose work is inspired by a
relentless fascination with the far-flung corners of the world and
the mysteries that rest just beneath the surface. When he's not
parked behind the keyboard, plugging away at another tale of terror
and suspense, he can be found in the game reserves of Africa or the
foothills of the Himalayas, exploring the intersection of nature and
culture, which ultimately lies at the heart of everything he writes.
He lives in Pittsburgh, PA, with his wife and a ragtag assortment of
badly behaved cats and dogs.
