Harry Squires was born in Chicago, Illinois. Hospital
records make no mention of any wise men arriving to
witness the event. He attended journalism school at the
University of Missouri and film school at U.C. L.A. He has
worked in educational television and radio, the insurance
industry, and software marketing.
Eventually, he gave up trying to convince the people
around him that he was normal, and dropped out to write
horror stories and mysteries for a living.
His philosophy of life can be boiled down to four rules:
Never do business with anyone who uses the words "trust"
or "honest;" Never eat at a restaurant with the
word "gourmet" in the name; Never be the first to load new
software or try a new drug.
Some people see the glass as half full, some as half
empty. Harry wonders what's in the glass, why it smells so
funny, and who poured it.
He currently lives by the beach in Southern California
with Susan, his very tolerant wife, and several large,
black dogs. The dogs, by the way, are not incarnations of
demonic beings---no matter what the neighbors say.
