Chris J. Vero is a 31-year-old French amateur writer. "My love for horror stories started in my teenage years, when I discovered some books by Clive Barker, Stephen King, Poe and later on Lovecraft," Vero says. "The idea of writing down my own stories came quite lately, around two years ago. I have a fondness for horror, but also for the sci-fi and historical genres. Some of my work is clearly Lovecraft-inspired. Writing is complementary of my other hobby, music. When I have no writing ideas, I play a bit of music, and vice versa."
