The son of an abusive alcoholic father and a benignly passive mother, Rune Morgan grew up on the set of a Stephen King novel… only the overly religious asshole didn’t get killed. Growing up he witnessed and fell victim to beatings, cried as his pets were killed for no reason, and desperately whispered unanswered prayers for it all to end. Through it all, his only escape from this existence was through books and movies and the ones that helped him escape best were science fiction, fantasy… and horror.
He was reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe toward the end of elementary school and watching the weekend creature feature on TV every week. By middle school he was reading Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft and watching everything from the classics of the 30s through the 50s to Hellraiser and Friday the 13th. In high school, he started exploring the world of exploitation cinema… Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS, Cannibal Holocaust, I Spit On Your Grave, etc. To say the least, Rune Morgan is well versed in the genre.With such a background, Rune Morgan was destined to do one of two things with his creativity… release it through fiction, poetry, art, and any other outlet it would bleed from; or decide what kind of psychopath he would become (more than likely a body snatcher and grave robber, like Ed Gein without the killing or wearing people). Well, with a family to think about and care for, he decided to try his hand at writing and hold onto psychopath as something to fall back on. Now, Rune Morgan is dedicated to making himself the motherfucking Leonardo da Vinci of the horror genre.
