Weston Ochse (pronounced 'Oaks) lives in Southern Arizona. For entertainment he races tarantula wasps, wrestles rattlesnakes, and bakes in the noonday sun. His work has won the Bram Stoker Award for First Novel and been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. His work has also appeared in anthologies, magazines and professional writing guides. He thinks it's damn cool that he's had stories in comic books. His latest novels are Blood Ocean from Abaddon Books, the post apocalyptic tale of a young man's journey to find himself, and SEAL Team 666, the story of a special organization that protects America from supernatural attack. Blood Ocean is currently available in mass market paperback. SEAL Team 666 will be published by St. Martin's Press in November in mass market hardback.
