Sean Leonard

Sean is an established punk rock drummer, a just-starting-but-already published fiction writer, a passable horror movie actor (by actor, we mean extra), and, of course, a horror writer/reviewer.

He lives in Kentucky with his horror-loving wife, his soon-to-be horror loving stepson (he has such sights to show him...once he gets older), and his dogs who could go either way on most horror movies, and yes, he does recognize that he is one lucky s.o.b.
