Author David Searls, Biography~
David Searls first had the novel Yellow Moon published by Warner Books in 1994. That was at the time the horror market was dying, so he wasn’t able to publish another work. He tried his hand at submitting mysteries and YA novels, but nothing got picked up.
In the meantime, he worked as a copywriter at several Cleveland ad agencies, while also moonlighting, or sometimes fulltime freelancing, as a magazine and marketing communications writer. His magazine credits include Cleveland Magazine, Plain Dealer Sunday Magazine, The Writer, Super Lawyer, USAToday.com, People.com, Concrete Décor, Case Engineering (a glossy publication from the Case Western School of Engineering) and countless others.
He was also a stringer for People, where he was able to cover such stories as a high school counterfeiter in Des Moines Iowa, a horse murder case in Kentucky, lawn mower racers in Mansfield, a murder case in Cleveland, and a famous (or infamous) child abuse case in northwest Ohio, to name a few. He’s interviewed Jim Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, and family members of other celebrities, in his time.
In 2012, he had two novels released by Samhain Publishing’s Horror line which was newly developed. Those novels were Bloodthirst in Babylon and Malevolent. Both had originally been written right after Yellow Moon first got picked up in the 1990s. He constantly updated and revised them and was very pleased to have found a home for them with Samhain, especially Bloodthirst in Babylon, since that is his favorite of all his novels.
Samhain Horror is re-releasing Yellow Moon on June 4, 2013, while David is still busy writing. He lives near Cleveland, Ohio. You can reach him at davidsearls.com and on Twitter @davidsearls1.
