John Squires

John Squires was born and raised in Hampton Bays, New York, to parents who were cool enough to feed him a steady diet of Nightmare on Elm Street sequels, Goosebumps books, and monster toys. Now married and a whole lot hairier, he stills spends the majority of his time playing with toys, watching horror movies, and writing about all of the above, contributing regularly to the horror sites Dread Central, Shock Till You Drop, iHorror, and Halloween Love.
