Matt Serafini is one of my favorite horror authors working right now. His novels feel like the horror paperbacks I fondly remember grabbing from the local library and then smuggling into my bedroom for late night reading back when I was a kid.

On this episode we discuss the movies that sucked us into horror, Matt’s history as an author as well as working on the audiobook for Severed Press‘s Ocean Grave.

The latest book of his I’ve narrated is Ocean Grave and his latest book release is Rites of Extinction.
