Dale Long grew up with his nose buried in the worlds of Farley Mowat, Agatha Christie and Franklin W. Dixon (AKA Leslie McFarlane et al.). In his teenaged years J.R.R. Tolkien and Piers Anthony became his reading staples. Adulthood saw yet another change as Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Mary Shelley, and Edgar Allan Poe haunted his bookshelf. Dale credits his mix of Newfoundland and Scottish heritage for his story telling knack.
Dale’s deep sense of tradition liberally peppered with East Coast sensibilities lends a richness and old school flavour to his writing. When he’s not writing horror, Dale likes to write old fashioned, Dickens-esque, Christmas stories and blog about his writing journey.
