Draven Ames is a writer and full-time psychology student out of Portland, Oregon. He is former member of the HWA and an ex-paratrooper with an interest in philosophical horror stories. Living in Portland has also helped shape his writing. The beauty of the forest in the Pacific Northwest and personality of its people has always seemed like the perfect setting for anything you want a reader to get lost in. His book, Bullets Till Midnight, is a philosophical horror novel set to debut late 2017 from Stitched Smile Publications. He has been published in an anthology, a magazine, and various eZines.
