About Patrick Winters
Patrick Winters is a graduate of Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. As a student, he was a two-time co-editor in chief of the college's literary and art magazine, Forte, and is a member of the international English honors society, Sigma Tau Delta.
Winters is now a proud member of the Horror Writers Association. His works have been published in numerous anthologies and magazines and have been featured on various web-based offerings, including the Horror Tree, the Sirens Call, Deadman's Tome, Fantasia Divinity Magazine, Sanitarium Magazine, and many more. While appreciating an array of genres, his favorite to both read and write in is Horror, because he's just plain weird like that!
Winters is an avid listener of all things hard-rock and heavy-metal, a compendium of comic-book knowledge, can (and will) do a perplexing array of voice impersonations, and can bend his thumbs further back than any person should have the right/capability of doing. It is all quite odd . . .

We all have a fascination for things that scare us—the thrill, the heart-stopping jump scares, the terrifying suspense. From the youngest age, we’re fascinated by the fiendish and furry, the creepiest critters, the naughty and the nasty. Horror is all around us, from the clowns who hide under our bed, to the things we might drag up from the brook at the bottom of the garden, and the zombies who crawl our streets.
As author, Megan Feehley, so beautifully says; there is beauty just before the terror…a silken breath taken before the spill of righteousness…the warmth of a licking flame preceding the scald.
So, close the drapes, check the locks, turn on all the lights and get comfortable. But don’t close your eyes…
Never close your eyes...

Death God antagonists are portrayed as villains, further popularising the view that Voodoo is centred around death and necromancy.
Here in Bones, we looked to explore some of these tropes in five-hundred-word stories.
So, adorn your top hat and tattered tuxedo, get cosy in the armchair, and enjoy twenty-six dark tales, inspired by the movies.
