Half way between humor and horror lies the reality of everyday life, and Vin Carver never stops half-way. Vin is an examiner of the extremes. From waking with a subtle smile on his face, to carrying the lifeless bodies of his loved ones to their final resting place, Vin has spent his life studying the pains of perception and pushing them into fantastical impossibilities. His writing is a reflection of his extremes.

Vin Carver lives in the shadows north of Seattle, Washington, USA. When he’s not converting his memories into fiction, you can find him pushing his body to the extreme. He travels great distances, running beneath the ponderosa pines, cycling over the seaside hills, and swimming against the current.

Living with his beloved wife, resilient son, and brilliant daughter, Vin is grateful for the love they share in their suburban home each day…and tormented by the fear of losing them in his nightmares each night.

“It’s only in the extremes that we can be scared, that we can rise above, that we can feel fear, and experience love.”

The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?
