“Rick Hautala’s writing shines with dedication, hard-earned craft, and devotion.”

—Matthew J. Costello, author of Vacation and Home

About the Author

Under his own name, Rick Hautala has written around thirty novels, including the million-copy best seller Nightstone, as well as Winter Wake, The Mountain King, and Little Brothers. He has previously published two short story collections: Bedbugs and Occasional Demons. He has had over sixty short stories published in a variety of national and international anthologies and magazines.

Writing as A. J. Matthews, his novels include the bestsellers The White Room, Looking Glass, Follow, and Unbroken.

His forthcoming books from Cemetery Dance Publications include Indian Summer, a new “Little Brothers” novella, as well as two novels, Chills and Waiting. He recently delivered The Star Road, a science fiction novel co-written with Matthew Costello, to Brendan Deneen at Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s due to be published in 2013.

With Mark Steensland, he has written several screenplays, included the multiple award-winning short film Peekers, based on the short story by Kealan Patrick Burke; The Ugly File, based on the short story by Ed Gorman; and Lovecraft’s Pillow, inspired by a suggestion from Stephen King.

Born and raised in Rockport, Massachusetts, Rick is a graduate of the University of Maine in Orono with a Master of Arts in English Literature. He lives in southern Maine with author Holly Newstein. Combined, they have five sons, all of whom have grown up and (mostly) moved out, leaving the house frighteningly quiet.  

In 2012, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers’ Association.

Most of his books and stories—and all of them, soon—will be available in all major e-book formats from a variety of e-publishers. For more information, check out his website www.rickhautala.com.
