I am an author and English teacher living in the San Francisco Bay area who enjoys reading and writing horror and fantasy. My short fiction has appeared online and in print since 2012. Some of my favorite authors include Ray Bradbury, Steven King, and Neil Gaiman. You can also find me puttering around on Facebook and Twitter @DMatteri.
