A fan of all things dark and horrific, D.W. Gillespie has been writing horror, sci-fi, and fantasy for longer than he would like to admit. After years of daydreaming, he started taking it seriously in college after a creative writing class helped spark his motivation. After winning a local writing award, he realized that his path forward was clear.
In the years since, hes been featured in many publications, both online and in print. Hes the author of more than a dozen novels, including The Toy Thief, Still Dark, and Handmade Monsters.
A lifelong native of Middle Tennessee, he still lives there today with his wife and two children.
For One by One, Gillespie was influenced by his experience of moving houses often when growing up. One particular house was supposedly haunted (according to previous tenants) and became specially inspirational, and he knew he wanted it to feature in one of his books as a character in the story.
