This is the website for my friend and fellow member of The Pen Of The Damned, Jon Olson.
Most of his stories/work are in the dark fiction/horror category but he also slips out into other areas when the creative bugs drive him there. Down the road he has plans for a novella/novel, children’s story and some projects he is hoping to turn into comics and/or graphic novels.
Aside from being an author, Jon works full time as a Security Checkpoint Coordinator at Robert L. Stanfield International Airport.
When he is not writing or working, he spends his time at his home in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia with his wife, daughter and four cats.
Here are some poems I lifted from his blog:
His fists would strike her so no one else would want her,
Her abuser, now lifeless, yet she is the monster.
He is sprawled out, naked upon the tiled floor,
His throat slit and bleeding; he could not hurt her anymore.
For one too many years she had suffered as a victim.
Many ears heard her but no one would listen.
They would nod and stare not bothering to understand,
That alone the reason for the bloody blade in her hand.
It screams, roars, wails and finally a howl,
This thing in front of me so unholy and foul.
Flesh hangs off its blackened, charred corpse,
Somehow it survived being burned at the touch of my torch.
It is ravenous now getting hungrier with the smell of my fear,
Its teeth biting into my flesh, the last things that I hear.
