JG Faherty grew up in the haunted Hudson Valley region of New York, and still resides there. Living in an area filled with Revolutionary War battle grounds, two-hundred year-old gravesites, ghosts, haunted roads, and tales of monsters in the woods has provided a rich background for his writing. A life-long fan of horror and dark fiction, JG enjoys reading, watching movies, golfing and hiking with his wife and dogs, volunteering as an exotic animal caretaker, and playing the guitar. His favorite holiday is Halloween (naturally), and one of his childhood playgrounds was an 18th century cemetery.
JG’s first novel, CARNIVAL OF FEAR, was released in 2010. His next book, GHOSTS OF CORONADO BAY, a YA supernatural thriller, was published in 2011 and earned a Bram Stoker Award nomination. 2012 saw the release of CEMETERY CLUB, THE COLD SPOT, and HE WAITS. In 2013, his novel THE BURNING TIME was released. 2014 will see the publication of several novellas and a novel. His other credits include more than 50 short stories in major genre magazines and anthologies.
