Damien Wake is an american bestselling horror writer born in Boston, at the earlier seventies. His father is a retired irish policeman and his mother is still a school teacher, he has a sister called Andrea, singer in a alternative pop music band. 

When Damien was still young, the Wake family moved to NY City, where the shy and tiny boy grew among cheap pulp novels and horror films. At one point, Damien became interested in writing. He became an avid reader of Stephen King and other horror writers, and then started writing his own stories. Damien's first story, Don't you dare to come in?, was published when he was still at highschool.

He soon discovered the world of blues by the hand of Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones and spent all his money buying a second hand old stratocaster. He tried to emule the BB King, Buddy Guy or Carlos Santana riffs and got to become and skilled guitarist. It's easy to find him playing blues guitar among friends in the best jazz clubs of NY.

Author of more than twenty short novels and several horror tales, Damien Wake recognises the influence of classic dark stories in his own writing style, honoured to name Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft as his very first masters. Damien Wake's writings try to catch the best of that fantastic horror tradition and join it whit contemporary legends of dark novels as Stephen King, Clive Barker o Richard Matheson, filling his stories with claustrophobic enviroments, troubled characters and frightening misteries.

In 2005, with his novels and antologies in the first places of selling lists, Damien lost his daughter and wife in a traffic accident. He then stepped back from public life and felt into a pitch of insomnia and alcohol that seemed to be the end of his career.

Now he's out of rehab and kept writting and playing guitar almost anonimously between New York City and Canary Islands, where he stablished in 2009.

Some of Damien Wake's more popular books are Night of Leaving Memories (1999), Are you really there? (2001), Last Trip to Deadland (2003), No One Will Come For You (2005) and his latest bestseller, Do Not Let Me Die (2010), first work after the tragedy of his family.
