I’m Steve Diamond. As you can see from my picture, I tend not to take anything seriously…and I recommend everyone build a throne out of your book collection and send them to me.

I tend to write whatever interests me when I sit down in front of the computer. Though it seems that I stray more towards Horror and Urban Fantasy.

My first novel, RESIDUE, was published by Ragnarok Publications.

I’ve written for Baen, and I write tie-in fiction for Skull Island eXpeditions–the fiction imprint for Privateer Press–in the Warmachine universe. You can also find my fiction in several small press collections. I also write for RPGs. Basically, I will write for anyone that asks me…and pays me.

I’m influenced by a ton of authors. The most prominent ones being: Brian Lumley, Robert McCammon, Joe Lansdale, Jonathan Maberry, Steven Erikson, Larry Correia, Mark Lawrence, James Barclay, Dan Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jim Butcher and Tom Lloyd. And then, you know, a bajillion others.
