About the Author
Andy Lockwood is a writer, an artist, and above all: a dreamer. He owes his continued fascination with the macabre to a lifetime immersed in the genre. His tutelage began with the stories of Ray Bradbury, Stephen King and other masters; early role models were the like of Vincent Price, Alice Cooper, The Addams’ and The Munsters. While pursuing studies in filmmaking, he found a new love of writing and storytelling. The limitations of scripted action brought him back to short story writing and the discovery of National Novel Writing Month. Eventually, his efforts would award him his first novel, Empty Hallways. Andy’s life has fallen haphazardly in line as part of the adventure his life decided to be. Eventually, he intends to capture the best of these stories in a lengthy memoir – or at least on his blog, Happier Thoughts (www.happierthoughts.com). His first novel, Empty Hallways, as well as his second novel, House of Thirteen, are both available in an ever-widening reach of ebook and paperback formats. He is constantly at work on an anthology of his own short stories. He is also hard at work on a second draft of a forthcoming novel, and the first draft of a follow-up to House of Thirteen. When not slaving away Andy spends his time buying books he does not have time to read, and delving into mediums he has no time to fully explore. He currently lives in mid-Michigan with his amazingly talented and supportive girlfriend, a brood of cats, a runaway imagination and a misguided idea of what it means to be an adult.
