Steve Van Sampson is a current staff writer & creative developer for Rough House Publishing, Steve Van Samson is the author of the "Predator World" series books and numerous short stories (published and otherwise). His writing tends to be on the pulpy side--intermingling genres like horror, dystopian with dark fantasy and adventure. He believes that character is king and there should always be little seeds planted between the lines, that the reader will only discover in subsequent readings.
When not tapping the keys on his Chromebook, Steve co-hosts the Retro Ridoctopus podcast, writes and records classic heavy metal with his band Enchanted Exile and watches entirely too many black and white monster films.
Steve lives in Lancaster, Massachusetts with three amazing girls and one smallish dragon.
Editing Services by NEHW - Not sure about your current work in process? Not sure if it’s right? New England Horror Writers is offering its editing services. To be specific: bring us 3-5 pages of your manuscript to the New England Horror Writers booth, make sure your name is on every page, and the pages are numbered AND double-spaced. One of the members present at the convention will edit that sample of your writing. You can take our suggestions or not — it’s completely up to you. Drop it off Saturday at the New England Horror Writers Booth (so we have time to do them) and pick them up Sunday. This is a limited space offer, available to the first 25 people. We may not edit your piece to the point where you can shoot it off to a publisher, but we will make comments and suggestions. Be open minded and don’t be afraid.
