Howard Shipley is an author from the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. His works are psychological thrillers taking frequent strolls through the macabre. He takes inspiration from a lifetime traveling in the Southern Appalachian Mountains and interacting with its people. His works can be found published in Burnt Pine Magazine. Howard lives in Morristown, TN with his wife—and number one beta reader—five of their seven children, two dogs, and a cat—because a small army of children isn’t chaotic enough.
