Adrian Chamberlin was born in Wales in 1971, lived in Cambridge for ten years and now lives in South Oxfordshire.
He's been writing the creepy stuff ever since he could hold a pen, much to the concern of parents and teachers. For instance, the bodycount and graphic violence in his first story 'The Octopus Rises From The Deep' (St John’s Primary School, 1979) led to concerns about his choice of reading matter. He was eight years old and already a massive fan of Guy N Smith and James Herbert. Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton just wern’t dark enough for him…
His first published story was 'Lovebite', a first-prize winner in Guy N Smith’s Graveyard Rendezvous competition in 1998; his apocalyptic tale of The Rapture 'Totality' was published in the same magazine in 2000.
Since then his works can be found on the Lovecraft eZine and the following (or forthcoming) anthologies: Tasmaniac Publication’s Festive Fear 2: Global Edition; HorrorBound’s Fear of the Dark; John Prescott’s M is for Monster; Static Press’s Monk Punk; Hersham Horror’s Alt-Dead; UnEarthed Press’s Anthology of Ichor III: Gears of Damnation; Evil Jester Press's Help! Wanted!; Pill Hill Press's Epocalypse: Emails at the End (with Suzanne Robb and Ian Kobe) and Dark Continents Publishing’s The Spectrum Collection.
His first novel 'The Caretakers' was launched at the World Horror Convention 2011 in Austin Texas, and he's now working on the Lovecraftian thriller 'Fairlight' as well as co-writing the third installment in the 'Snareville' saga with DM Youngquist.
