Author Bio
Robert McCammon
A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Robert McCammon graduated from the University of Alabama with a B.A. in 1974. Following a series of advertising jobs, he began working at the Birmingham Post-Herald, as a copy editor, in 1976. The publication of his first novel, 1978's BAAL, led him to full-time writing career; from then until 1992, McCammon averaged about one novel, along with a handful of short stories, each year. A best-selling author, he has won a World Fantasy Award--for his 1991 novel, BOY'S LIFE--and five Bram Stoker Awards--three for novels (1987's SWAN SONG, 1990's MINE, and BOY'S LIFE) and two for short stories: "The Deep End" (1988), and "Eat Me" in 1990. While mainstream critical opinion of most of his work has been somewhat divided, BOY'S LIFE, with its fictionalized autobiographical account of a 12-year-old would-be writer during an Alabama summer in 1964, received almost universally positive marks. Although 1992's GOING SOUTH was an extension of his previous book, McCammon began to move away from the horror genre. Beginning in 1992, he took some time off from writing to be with his family. McCammon has indicated that, in the future, his fiction will continue to be less horror, and more mainstream and historical, but given his tremendous marketability as a horror writer, it remains to be seem whether this will be the case.
