When he's not homeschooling and parenting, Max Blood spends his days spinning horror tales for online audiences. He specializes in the weird, the cosmic, and the monstrous. With a passion for turning cryptid stories into positively horrific monsters, he has created many tales of monster horror. He has also dabbled in ghost stories and body horror.

He currently lives in Bakersfield, California where he writes his novels and short stories, and in 2023, he launched Max Blood's Mausoleum, a magazine of original horror stories.
