Author Picture



A. R. BRAUN became interested in horror when he read “The Telltale Heart” as an assignment in high school. By the time he was seventeen, he bought every issue of Chillers magazine, which had short stories by up-and-coming horror authors and articles about horror films. When he was eighteen, he had the whole Stephen King collection and started writing short stories for friends and family. His main goal was to put together a heavy metal band, and he spent many years working blue collar jobs and seeking out musicians, but never fell in with the right kind of guys.


Now, A. R. has numerous publication credits, including “NREM Sleep” in the D.O.A. anthology; “Freaks” in Downstate Story magazine; “The Unwanted Visitors” in the Vermin anthology; “Coven” in the Heavy Metal Horror anthology; “Remember Me?” in Horror Bound magazine; “Shades of Gray (the Symbiosis of Light and Dark)” in Micro Horror magazine; and “The Interloper” in Bonded by Blood 2: a Romance in Red. Though SNM editor Steve Marshall has wiped all proof of A. R. ever having a publication on the SNM Home/Hell/Hades website, A. R. kept the check from winning Story of the Month in June of 2009, the first time he was ever paid for writing.Save

Weightlifting, mixed martial arts, and audio comedy are a few of his current interests.
