Hello All,

It is I, Nicholas J Cutter Esq! I'm the writer of The Troop, The Deep, The Acolyte (May 2015), and the upcoming Little Heaven (2016, probs). I write horror and I love doing it. If the books sell, I'll keep writing them. If they don't, I'll go dig a ditch--not for the money, but because that's what I like to do when I'm not writing.

You can visit me at:

www.craigdavidson.net (that's the name of my alter ego)

Or check out my author page at:

Yrs most sincerely,

Nick.
