Derek Neville has been a cynic ever since he found out the dish ran away with the spoon. He has been making up stories since he can remember, thanks to a very overactive imagination. He also taught a small town to believe in dance again, but that's neither here nor there. Some of his short-story work has seen publication in school magazines, anthologies, and short-story contests. He is heavily influenced by the works of Richard Matheson, Michael Chabon, Bernard Malamud, Neil Gaiman and Brian K. Vaughan just to name a few. He currently resides in New England where the weather changes every other day. He is also very tired.
