About Erik Gustafson
I spent 20 years serving in the United States Air Force, and have had the fortune to live all over the world, including Iceland, Germany, and in a tent for a year in Saudi Arabia.
Always an artist at heart, I produced many paintings during my adventures. After my service, I settled down with my family (wife, two great daughters, 2 cats and a little white fluff dog) in small town Iowa, where I love to volunteer at the antique carousel. Now, I am the clinical manager of a children's psychiatric residential facility and teach psychology classes at a local college.
I switched from a paint brush to a pen and am now a dark fantasy and horror writer, by night.
I am working on my forth novel. I have been published in The Horror Zine, Horrified Press, Sirens Call Publications, Pleasant Storm Entertainment, Crypto and Co., Death Throes Webzine, and several other horror anthologies.
Escape from your reality for a bit and get scared. It feels good.

Alice spent her birthday crying and angry. Betrayed by those closest to her, she drove until her gas light came on. She doesn’t know where she is. …but the blood knows.
Revenge is sweet, but sometimes it is most foul. The cost of revenge in this tale may be too high, but vengeance will be served.
What people are saying about his work:

Every town across the globe has a horrific tale, whether it is current news or folklore passed down generation to generation. These stories shock and dismay the residents of these communities, leaving them afraid to turn off the lights and go to sleep. The average person tries their best to forget about the darkest evil that lurks outside, in the abandoned building down the street, and in the depths of their own imagination.
We, on the other hand, invite the darkness. For this is our community, our Horror Society, where your neighbor has more than secrets buried in the back yard. Where blood curdling screams replace friendly banter. Where the terror that awaits you is far worse than you originally thought. And you will never know which breath will be your last."
