Home-grown in Bellingham, Washington, Alder Strauss loves where he lives; being particularly fond of the Seattle and Portland areas and their surrounding natural beauty. Alder has been writing since early adolescence, drawing much of his focus in the mystery and horror genre, and has various works published in ‘Infernal Ink Magazine’ and ‘The Nightmare Engine’ horror-fiction magazines under another name, among others.
Hydra M. Star began her existence as one half of a set of twin fetuses. She ate her twin in utero. Almost from her birth—as an only child—she had an intense interest in all things mysterious and magical. As she aged, her taste matured and darkened from the Disneyesque styled fairy stories of childhood to the Erotic Horror she writes and publishes today. Her work is often inspired by legend and folklore, with violent werewolf sex being one of her favorite things. Consider your triggers warned.
In addition to writing, Hydra designs and hand-burns a line of pyrography items featuring symbols and signs from various occult and magical traditions. She is also the publisher of Infernal Ink Magazine and the owner of Infernal Ink Books, both of which she uses as platforms to bring the most twisted and sexually depraved horror and dark fiction she can find to the world.
