John Durgin

John is a proud HWA member and lifelong horror fan who decided to chase his childhood dream of becoming a horror author. Growing up in New Hampshire, he discovered Stephen King much younger than most probably should have, reading IT before he reached high school—and knew from that moment on he wanted to write horror. In 2021 he started submitting short stories in hopes of getting noticed in the horror community and launching a career. He had his first story accepted in the summer of 2021 in the Books of Horror anthology. Coming up, John has multiple stories to be released in the prose and comic world, including a story in the horror anthology Beach Bodies from DarkLit Press. His debut novel, titled The Cursed Among Us, released June 3rd, 2022 and hit #1 new release in American Horror, going on to become an Amazon bestseller and reaching #1 in U.S. Horror. His second novel, Inside The Devil’s Nest, released 1/27/2023 through D&T Publishing.
