CW Hawes – David Lee Summers – Jack Tyler
Tim Sorrensen – Tom Davison – Venus Tyler
CW Hawes is one of the hardest-working indies in the Craft today. Responsible for a number of series across multiple genres, CW brings the talent to succeed in all of them. Expect ghosts, goblins, and an eerily spot-on channeling of the Cthulhu Mythos in all of its glory.
David Lee Summers is a well-known writer in the fields of steampunk, sci-fi, and a very off-beat brand of the supernatural that indulges clockwork mummies in Victorian London and vampires in deep space. David labors in his “day” job as a full-time astronomer at the Kitt Peak Observatory, so his fiction is very much based in scientific fact. Every bit the gentleman that he appears to be, David is a delight to know, so be sure to say hello while you’re visiting the site!
Jack Tyler began writing in elementary school in 1958. Lessons have been learned. He was known initially for his work in steampunk where he earned the sobriquet, “Blimprider.” After a brief stop in crime, he has moved on to creepy occult stories. Come pay him a visit when you’re in the mood for a chill.
Tim Sorrensen is an Australian writer known for his Hitchcockian twists. Whether he’s writing action, crime, or a thriller, you can always count on the sudden swerve at the end that takes the reader to a place he never expected to go. One of his creepiest is on display here on his personal page. You’ll find the tab above. You wouldn’t believe that he only started writing in 2018.
Dr. Tom Davison is an adjunct professor in a technical college prison program, which gives him access to all the inspiration any writer could need. As a writer, Tom understands horror deeply and thoroughly. Just consider his channeling of H.P. Lovecraft for all the credentials anyone could ask for.
Venus Tyler is a young artiste extraordinaire whose work has been featured at the San Diego Comic Con. She designed our cover page and can be contracted for cover and illustration jobs. The drop-dead looks of a cover model — which she is — combined with a quick wit and dry sense of humor make her a delight to know. Stop by and say hello… if you dare!
These are the denizens of Threads that Bind. We expect that more will join the fold periodically. There’s a lot of experience here to be plumbed, so bookmark the site and come back frequently for the latest from great creative minds. We’d love to… have you!
