As a boy, Chris P. Clay was timid, nervous and easily spooked. As an adult, he considers himself to be reserved and cautious. The easily spooked has morphed into a fascination with all things eerie and macabre. He is fascinated with the supernatural and exploring the scary side of childhood fairy tales, old toys, circuses and carnivals. Some of his favorite dark visionaries are Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Guillermo del Toro and Tim Burton. When not writing, he reads, watches movies, walks or bikes, cooks and makes art.
