When Ari Marmell has free time left over between feeding cats and posting on social media, he writes a little bit. His work includes novels, short stories, role-playing games, and video games, all of which he enjoyed in lieu of school work when growing up. He’s the author of the Mick Oberon gangland/urban fantasy series, the Widdershins YA fantasy series, and many others, with publishers such as Del Rey, Titan Books, Pyr Books, Wizards of the Coast, and now Omnium Gatherum.

Ari currently resides in Austin, Texas. He lives in a clutter that has a moderate amount of apartment in it, along with George—his wife—and the aforementioned cats, who probably want something.

You can find Ari online, if you’re not careful.

Free Today! Twenty-Eight Teeth of Rage

One man ravaged by disease, the other by war, their stories— and fates— bound by an ancient entity that thrives on suffering. For Detective Ernest Riley, the path to damnation begins with an anonymously mailed recording detailing a series of grisly murders. Can Riley unravel its secrets without sacrificing his humanity? Or will he surrender to the RAGE inside him?

Strom Wheldon has returned from Iraq a literal half-man. But he’s lost more than his legs to that desert Hell. He’s lost his will to live. Can love save him from the RAGE eating him from within? Or will a gift given in innocence cost him everything?

"28 Teeth of Rage has the bite of a crocodile. Drake tears a hole right through modern horror. This guy isn't on the way; he's kicking in the door." — Laird Barron, award winning author of THE IMAGO SEQUENCE, OCCULTATION, and THE CRONING.

“This is a tale of possession and madness, but the kind that any sane person will understand. Drake gets inside the heart and mind of each character and never stops digging for the truth.” — S.P. Miskowski, author of the the Shirley Jackson Award nominated novel KNOCK KNOCK

‎"A powerful work of horror. Drake's prose beats with a million-mile-an-hour force, propelling you through meat and sinew with a terrifying bite. This is not a work for the weak, for the timid. With beautiful language and raw power, Drake takes you on a wrenching journey into our worst desires. A propulsive read by a fantastic new voice in the genre, one you're likely to never forget." — Simon Strantzas, author of Nightingale Songs

About Knock Knock

"Beautifully written and relentlessly suspenseful, it's a great book to curl up with on a cold winter's night. Just be sure to keep the doors locked and all the lights on!" - Lucy Taylor, The Silence Between the Screams

"With her distinct voice, Miskowski takes you deep into the back woods of America, where shadows chase you and people do the unthinkable." - Angel Leigh McCoy, Wily Writers

At the center of S.P. Miskowski's novel-length fairy tale are three restless girls, best friends stuck in the backwater of Skillute, Washington in the late 1960s. Their neighbors and families are petty or poor or both. They warn the girls not to wander into Skillute's dense forest; something evil lurks there, people say. The girls are not convinced. During a playful oath, they wander too far into the woods. Their mistake unleashes a malignant spirit that terrorizes Skillute for the next fifty years.

Cover for Knock KnockSomething evil has come home.KNOCK KNOCK is one of those stories that takes you deep into the back woods of America, where shadows chase you and people do the unthinkable. With her distinct voice, Miskowski reveals the horror in both everyday and not-so-everyday life in small-town America. From the first few pages, you're hooked into the lives of three young girls who wander too far from home and find a terrifying secret among the roots of an old tree. Time reveals that this secret is tightly woven with their own roots as well, and throughout their lives, these girls are haunted by the thing that took notice of their indiscretion. — Angel Leigh McCoy, Wily Writers
"When three little girls from Skillute, Washington, choose to tempt fate and local superstition by performing a ceremony of dark magic in the woods, they unwittingly call forth an ancient and seemingly indestructible evil.  With skillfully drawn characters and a rural setting that's unabashedly creepy, S.P. Miskowski deftly lures us into an ever-tightening web of terror that's closing in on the girls, their families, and their town. Beautifully written and relentlessly suspenseful, it's a great book to curl up with on a cold winter's night. Just be sure to keep the doors locked and all the lights on!" - Lucy Taylor, The Silence Between the Screams
