About derekailes2003

I am a science fiction & horror writer from Valparaiso, Indiana. I also love to write horror stories about zombies and cats. I am also a political satirist. In 1985 I wrote my first short story: "The Day It Rained Candy." I also started writing a science fiction series called "Power Force." In 1994 I published my first short story: "The Night Of the Living Redheads." I am currently writing horror short stories with my brother, Mark Cusco Ailes, for the horror collection: "The Second Journey Into The Unknown." In 2015 I will celebrate my 30th Anniversary as a writer. My writing influences are Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Ira Levin, Terry Brooks, R. Karl Largent, Zombie Fiction Writers. I started reading heavily at the age of five and by middle school I had read close to 200 books or more. I'm not talking just thin children's books. I mean Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Star Trek and Star Wars novels and more. I grew up watching Tales From The Crypt, Star Trek, The Twilight Zone, Tales From The Darkside, Buck Rogers, Battlestar Galactica (the original series) old time horror films with Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr. I also love watching all of the low-budget Full Moon Videos: Puppet Masters and the Trancers. I'm big into 80s horror films: Friday, the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween.
