Order of the Damned
Joseph A. Pinto – The Tale Weaver
Author of two novels; crafter of numerous short stories and prose. The Tale Weaver. Co-founder of the Pen of the Damned. Member of the Horror Writers Association. Rumored lycanthrope and New Orleans Saints fan. New Jersey native. Owner of a bad ass 1968 Ford Fairlane.
Veronica Magenta Nero is a fiction writer and poet. She loves to spin dark tales of fantasy, horror and erotica. She is fascinated and inspired by the metaphysical, occult and paranormal, the deviant and deranged, and all things that seethe deep within our subconsciousness.
On top of working full time as a Security Checkpoint Coordinator at the Halifax Robert L. Stanfield International Airport and still learning the ropes of being a father, Jon is also a writer of horror and dark fiction. While he writes predominantly about the dark and horrible, he will step out into other areas if the interest is there. He finds enjoyment in expressing his creativity through fiction, poetry, songwriting, painting and thrashing the crap out of his bass guitar.
Lee Forman is a fiction writer from the Hudson Valley, NY. His fascination with the macabre began in childhood, watching old movies and reading everything he could get his hands on. He’s a third generation horror fanatic, starting with his grandfather who was a fan of the classic Hollywood Monsters. His work has been published in horror magazines, anthologies, and podcasts. When he’s not crafting horrifying creatures and tales of terror, he spends his time playing guitar and writing music.
Nina D’Arcangela is a quirky horror writer who likes to spin soul rending snippets of despair. She reads anything from splatter matter to dark matter. She’s also an UrbEx adventurer who loves to photograph abandoned places, bits of decay and old graveyards. Nina is the co-founder of Pen of the Damned; the co-owner of Sirens Call Publications and Phrenic Press; and the resident nut-job and sole anarchist at Dark Angel Photography.
Christopher is a creator of worlds, destroyer of lives and yes, he sleeps well at night…mostly. He is a fiction writer, poet, and scribe to a beautifully vengeful muse with a taste for horror, fantasy and the erotic. His insatiable imagination has no limit. If you happen to run across Christopher’s path and he seems distracted, it would most likely be prudent to glance over your shoulder – you never know what he may be plotting.
Hunter Shea is the author of the horror novels Forest of Shadows and Evil Eternal, both published by Samhain Horror. His stories have appeared in magazines like Dark Moon Digest, Morpheus Tales, Tabard Inn, The Harrow, and Ethereal Tales, just to name a few.
I am an author of dark literature – horror, paranormal, fantasy and suspense. While my writing is always my own, I don’t always feel like I’m the puppet master of the sinister products of my mind. I work for the FBI, and am on the SWAT team for our division.

Horror Fiction (or Dark Fantasy Fiction) is my passion—my calling. The dark unknown is just too damn interesting to be left, well, unknown! I’m an author that will reach into the looming shadows and show you its writhing, dangers and treasures in vivid detail. And then, for your own good, I’ll push you into the darkness head first for a ride you’ll never forget.
