Featured Author: Raymond Esposito

Raymond Esposito is an American novelist born in the small town of Northford, Connecticut, in 1966. As the middle son, he learned the importance of placing his own mark on the world. His parents divorced when he was in second grade, and like many "latchkey" children of the 1970s, the absence of adult supervision allowed him to discover a world of creativity and imagination. Those experiences were the inspiration for his writing, and many will appear in the forthcoming novel, The Demon.
In 1984, he attended the University of Connecticut, where, after dabbling in economics, philosophy, and English literature, he settled on a degree in psychology-people and their motivations were, after all, the thing that always fascinated him.
He began writing short stories at the age of twelve, although he never shared them. It was a passion that continued into adulthood and one fed by his love of all things horror. In 1999, he wrote his first "real" short story titled "Witches Lake." It was a campfire tale for his children. Over the next decade, he penned another thirty stories. In 2011, he began a short story titled "U & Me, against the World." It became his first published novel and is book 1 of the Creepers Saga.
Today, Raymond lives in Florida. He married the perfect women, he raised two perfect sons, and he was blessed with three beautiful stepdaughters, whom he considers the best "gift with purchase" any second marriage could provide. He also shares his castle with their 135-pound "puppy," Zeus. The two often debate the merits and drawbacks of feeding Twinkies to a dog; to date, Zeus has won all those arguments.

The World is infected and humanity is reduced to creatures of vicious insanity. Doctor Thorn's rescue by a group of young survivors is just the beginning of their nightmarish journey.... a journey to survive where each will discover the sacrifices required for love and loyalty in a dead world. In this apocalyptic landscape, humankind has one final hope - a hope that rests on the strength and determination of ten young men and women.

The survivors had experienced things worse than death. Like the loss of friends, infected cats, and the Creepers. Fleeing from the insanity of Fort New Hope, pursued by the relentless Infected, their hope rests on their love for one another and a far off place once called Wyoming. It is a thousand mile trek across a landscape of death and horror and a journey marked by impossible choices. First, however, they must buy Dr. Thorn enough time to save their injured friend. In the remains of a small hospice, they will again, play out a dangerous race against the clock. For with each passing moment spent saving their friend, the Creepers draw closer.
