HamelinMy name is Justin Hamelin. I am a Rondo Hatton Award-winning freelance author and writer who contributes to Rondo Hatton Award-winning webzine Ravenous Monster .  You can also find my work on Tom Holland’s Terror Time.

In 2012, I had the privilege of assisting Women In Horror founder Hannah Forman for the month of February’s Women in Horror Month events.

When I’m not talking, reading, writing or dreaming about horror, you can find me at home, enjoying life with my wife and our three black cats… and a tabby named Ripley.

By day she is a mild-mannered warehouse manager for an electric supply house.
By night she plays with dead things.

Lovecraft to Anne Rice to Stephen King.  Her background is in all the behind-the-scenes of putting on everything from a horrific fashion show to haunted attractions with special grounding in special fx makeup, costume design and character development, set design and lighting.  She currently resides in the HellMouth (aka Gainesville) , Florida with her husband, various children and many rescue “minions”.
