Our guest this week at Thorne & Cross: Haunted Nights LIVE! is one of the most inventive and finely-tuned horror writers of our time and both of us are major fans. In fact, his novel, Ash Wednesday, is in Tamara’s Top Ten favorite haunting novels of all time!

With a career that includes more than twenty novels, over 100 short stories in various magazines and anthologies, as well as film and television adaptations of his work, we couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce the one and only Chet Williamson.
