Bio and Bibliography

Lee Allen HowardI write dark fiction: horror, LGBTQ horror, supernatural crime, dark crime, and psychological thrillers. And technical manuals. All terribly horrifying.

Lee Allen Howard has been a technical writer in the software industry since 1985. (Why do fiction writers pretend like they don’t have day jobs? I like to eat just like everyone else!) I also edit fiction and non-fiction projects. I’ve done book layout and publishing consultancy.

A long time ago I earned a BA in English from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I also earned an MA in Biblical Studies from CI School of Theology and an MA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University.Pride Flag

My publications include:

I’m also the founder, editor, and publisher at Dark Cloud Press (, publisher of horror, dark crime, and psychological thrillers. (Closed to submissions.)

After completing my Master of Arts in Writing Popular Fiction in June 2006, coupled with starting a new job, undergoing some significant life changes (getting divorced, coming out), selling a house, and relocating—whew!—I was a bit shell-shocked and laid off writing for a while.

In January 2008 I attended Borderlands Writers Boot Camp in Baltimore, and it really jump-started my writing. I highly recommend it.

In June 2011 I spoke at Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction In Your Write Mind alumni retreat on the topic, “Alternative Methods of Idea and Story Generation.” I presented “Psychic Development for Writers” at the 2012 retreat and “Self-editing for Publication” in June 2013. I spoke at the 2019 retreat on “Mastering Narrative Modes.”

I live in western New York state. I’m available to edit dark fiction.
