“I was. We just ran through some basic drills in the pool today, stuff like mask clearing and recovering lost mouthpieces. We got out earlier than normal.”
Reynard said, “No transformations, even partial ones, where outsiders can see us.
“What would your parents say if they saw you like this?
“I’d be in for it, wouldn’t I?”
“Some of us were going to meet at the creek and go swimming.” Reynard started away, turned, and said, “Thanks, Drew.”
“Yeah. I guess. Officer, could you tell us where we’d have to go to see some of the vampires living in Boringville?”
Robert Clark was born and raised in Eerie (Erie), Pennsylvania. He was brought up on Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella comic books, stories of Ax Murder Hollow, science fiction novels, and late night horror and science fiction movies. He delighted in scaring the neighborhood kids with stories he made up or swiped from comic books. His fifth grade teacher told his parents he’d end up either in prison or as an author. To the surprise of almost everyone who knows him, he graduated from college. After graduation he spent years teaching biology. While doing so his fifth grade teacher’s prediction (?) threat (?) curse (?) whatever, came true. Tired of reality, he decided to try writing fiction. The genres he writes in are science fiction, fantasy, and horror/supernatural, although these often overlap in his books. He and his wife live in northwestern Pennsylvania. Clark is no longer teaching biology, but is still writing. At this point he hasn’t been in prison and hopes to keep it that way.
