It’s truly amazing how many local authors there are in the Dayton area, and they are one of our favorite type of guests. Their creative spirit and courage to put their stories out there to the public, is really inspiring. In this episode we get to know local author Rob Boley, who has written a series of fantasy/horror/fairy tale mashups that are truly fascinating.

Rob also talks about local events including A Tasting with Friends, the Gem City Comic Con and the Antioch Writers’ Workshop. See links below for more information. Also if you are a writer yourself, tune in to hear about his publishing experience and his daily ritual that has helped him complete seven books in a very short period of time!

Rob E. Boley grew up in Enon, Ohio, a little town with a big Indian mound. He later earned a B.A. and M.A. in English from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. He’s the author of  The Scary Tales series of dark fantasy novels featuring mash-ups of classic fairy tale characters and horror monsters. His fiction has appeared in several markets, including A cappella Zoo, Pseudopod, Clackamas Literary Review, and Best New Werewolf Tales. His stories have won Best in Show in the Sinclair Community College Creative Writing Contest and the Dayton Daily News/Antioch Writers’ Workshop Short Story Contest. He lives with his daughter in Dayton, where he works for his alma mater. Each morning and most nights, he enjoys making blank pages darker.
