Author, Novelist, Short Story Writer

Justin Alcala is an award-winning American author & short story writer. His works are featured in Publisher’s Weekly, the SLF Foundation, and University of British Columbia. When he’s not burning his retinas out at a computer, Justin is a folklore fanatic, history nerd, tabletop gamer and time traveler. He claims he's a medieval knight and actively hunts dragons. Justin’s stories often take place in The Plenty Dreadful universe, a deranged supernatural rendition of the contemporary world. He currently resides with his dark queen, Mallory, their malevolent daughter, Lily, changeling son, Ronan, hellcat, Misery and hound of Ragnarök, Fenrir. Where his mind might be is anyone’s guess.

Have you checked out the A DEAD END JOB Spotify playlist? It's a pretty rad collection of DJ picks and my own favorites. Goes great with the novel and a whiskey.
