T. G. Arsenault

.G. Arsenault grew up in Auburn, Maine. As you might expect, Stephen King has had a great influence on his work, as well as his life. At the age of twelve, his father let him read Carrie, a book that would create a love for horror and be the catalyst for his desire to be a writer. At thirteen, he had the distinct pleasure of meeting Stephen King at a Lewiston, Maine cinema during the opening of the movie, Christine. Unable to afford a hardcover, Arsenault approached Mr. King with wide eyes and a shaking hand, to present a paperback copy of Christine - a book currently wrapped in plastic.

Shortly thereafter, he wrote his first short story, The Man in White, about a serial killer. His English teacher at the time like it enough to submit to a national competition. He didn't win, but the proverbial seed had been planted.

His first novel, Forgotten Souls, was published in November, 2005 by Five Star, an imprint of Thomson/Gale. He has also had short stories published in multiple online venues including Horrorfind, Alternate Realities, Sinister Element, and Dark Moon rising, as well as the paperback anthologies, Octoberland and R.A.W. - Random Acts of Weirdness. His short story, "The Eighth Day," which appeared in R.A.W., also received an honorable mention in the Years Best Fantasy and Horror, Sixteenth Annual Collection. He is currently nearing completion of his second novel, Bleeding the Vein.

T.G. Arsenault has a BS in Workforce Education, Training and Development from Southern Illinois University and is enrolled in an MS in Management program from Troy University. He resides in California with his wife, Diana, and son, Christopher.
