M. S. Butler's love of horror and all things supernatural began at a young age. He learned to read at age two and hasn't stopped since, absorbing story after story until he finally began writing at age twelve. He is heavily influenced by H. P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Jim Butcher, and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.
He started writing poems while still in elementary school, being inspired by Homer's The Odyssey, before moving on to short stories. Now aged 26 he has written several short stories including Footsteps in the Darkness currently being considered for the Fish Publishing Flash Fiction Prize. He is currently hard at work on his debut novel Abyssal Tides, a supernatural thriller set in modern day Massachusetts.
He can be found most days surrounded by his cat, leopard gecko, tarantula, and two dogs when he's not passionately loving his fiancee.
