Rick R. Reed has been described as "the Stephen King of gay horror" (Unzipped magazine, October 2006) and his dark, suspenseful fiction has been called, "a harrowing ride through cutting-edge psychological horror" (Douglas Clegg, author of The Attraction) and having a "knack for presenting the gruesome lower depths of a soul" (New City).

His most recent novels include Orientation, a novel about lost love, reincarnation, and sexual orientation; a sexy thriller called High Risk about a bored housewife who chooses a very handsome--and very psychotic--stranger to come on to; Deadly Vision, a paranormal page-turner about a psychic reluctantly caught up in the murders of two teenage girls in her small western Pennsylvania town; In the Blood, a tragic vampire love story, and IM, a thriller about a serial killer preying on gay men using online gay hookup sites. IM has been optioned for film by Panic Productions in Hollywood.

Past writing credits include A Face Without a Heart, a modern-day, Chicago-set version of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray; Penance; and Obsessed. Both Penance and Obsessed were published in Dell's lauded horror line, Abyss and, together sold more than 80,000 copies. Both books were reissued in 2006. His horror short story collection, Twisted: Tales of Obsession and Terror, was published in 2006.

Upcoming projects include Dead End Street, a young adult horror novel, which will be released in October 2008. A four-author horror collection featuring three of Reed's stories, Like a Chinese Tattoo, was also published in 2008. His short fiction has appeared in more than twenty anthologies. He is a member of the Authors Guild, the Horror Writers Association, and the International Order of Horror Professionals.

He lives in Miami with his partner.
