Suburbia was supposed to be the idle American dream, the payoff for all our hard work and ingenuity, but it was never quite what it made itself out to be, was it? Down beneath the facade of green perfectly trimmed lawns, cookie cutter houses, neighborhood associations and the quiet late night streets are a thousand terrible secrets, each of them darker than the last. Here you will encounter tales of horror and the bizarre, forbidden towns, costly homeowner’s associations, illicit blood sports, the occult, and all the bitter fruit of hidden monsters. Welcome to our neighborhood of nightmares!
Essel Pratt is from Mishawka, Indiana, a North Central town near the Michigan border. His prolific writings have graced the pages of multiple anthologies, a couple self-published works, as well as his own creations.
As a husband, a father, and a pet owner, Essel's responsibilities never end. Other than a family man, he works a full time job an hour from his home, he is a writer for the Inquisitr, a full time student on his journey to a degree - while maintaining a 4.0 GPA, and is also the Chief of Acquisitions and Executive Assistant for J. Ellington Ashton Press. His means of relieving stress and relaxing equate to sitting in front of his dual screens and writing the tales within the recesses of his mind.
Inspired by C.S. Lewis, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Harper Lee, William Golding, and many more, Essel doesn't restrain his writings to straight horror. His first Novel, Final Reverie is more Fantasy/Adventure, but does include elements of Horror. His first zombie book, The ABC's of Zombie Friendship, attacks the zombie genre from an alternate perspective. Future books, that are in progress and yet to be imagined, will explore the blurred boundaries of horror within its competing genres, mixing the elements into a literary stew.
