About William Tea
When William Tea was a boy, he thought monsters lived in the dark. So when the lights were out, he snarled and spat and twisted his hands into claws, trying to blend in with the things that went bump in the night.
He’s been friends with the monsters ever since.
Today, William Tea lives in the Northeastern Pennsylvania Coal Region. His work has been featured in anthologies published by Muzzleland Press, Wildside Press, Planet X Publications, StrangeHouse Books, and CLASH Books.
