More details:

After graduating from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, and obtaining his Master’s Degree in Demonology from Miskotonic University, Tim Chizmar has written for various magazines, newspapers and websites including Fangoria, First Comics News, Girls and Corpses, and many others. He has sold short stories to such collections as Chicken Soup for the Soul and has written various screenplays for Hollywood production companies. Tim has been a proud member of various writers’ organizations including the Los Angeles Chapter of the prestigious Horror Writers Association.

Aside from the darker topics, it has not all been a career of terror as his lighter credits to date include ABC, FOX, Showtime, Playboy, NBC, The Hallmark Channel, and many more. He has produced various pilots including in 2010 he developed a comedy/action series for CMT with wrestling superstar Rob Van Dam. As a headlining comedian Tim was a favorite at The World Famous Hollywood IMPROV, The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, has toured all over the world playing sold-out casinos, clubs and colleges. To date he has worked with such standup legends as Jeff Foxworthy, Gabriel Iglesias, Jon Lovitz, Daniel Tosh, and many others.

When he’s not inspiring fellow writers by being on various panels such as San Diego Comic-Con, WonderCon, Scare LA, or speaking at Hollywood Success events, he’s constantly working on his next project. Because for Tim Chizmar… There’s always a next project! After Tim had been successful enough to become a regular at red carpet premieres, he left all the glitz and glam behind in early 2017 for the mountains of Idaho as he completed this book. He always looks forward to having frank, honest, and engaging discussions on the business of the writing craft with his fellow writers. Tim’s advice to young writers is this…

“Be inspired. Are you alive, or are you just breathing?”
