featured author: Mike Heffernan

Oscar Deadwood at a recent signing in Royal Oak, MI.Silverthought Press is proud to announce that Newfoundland writer/editor Mike Heffernan is the featured author for April 2007. Silverthought will begin shipping our next two releases, A Dark and Deadly Valley and Exposed!, our first foray into horror publishing and Mike's print debut, this month.

Born and raised in the historic harbor city of St. John's, Newfoundland, the oldest city in North America, Mike Heffernan has been poking his nose around in the darker side of the human condition for as long as he can remember. He thinks he can pinpoint his baptism in blood to primary school, when his cousin subjected him to an almost daily dose of a deadly cocktail of horror movies.

Mike later cut his teeth on such nastiness as Barker, Skipp and Spector, Romero and King. Writing since his adolescence, he put his creative endeavors on hold to study German history, but came back to horror with a mean vengeance. It's been full-tilt-boogie for some time now, and it seems to be panning out. His books include Aim for the Head, A Dark and Deadly Valley, and Exposed!
