My name is Bob Kaplan. I am a professional published author with almost 2 decades of experience under my belt. I mainly write dark fantasy and horror. But I have also been known to write screenplays which usually consist of horror, comedy, and horror-comedy. In fact, I am currently studying Film, English, and Screenwriting at Temple University. This past summer I became really involved with music journalism. I have done a good amount journalism in the past, but I have recently been drawn to music journalism in particular. I review films and host my own segment for the TV show "3 Guys Don't Lie". I also reviewed underground rock bands for the website MusicUnderFire. I have published many articles on Helium.com and Guidespot.com. I used to have my own on-going blog called "G0d Hates Us". I also DJ'd for WDCR (Delaware County Radio) for 2 years. In the past, I have worked with and wrote about two underground rock bands: "El Fuego" and "Casting Shade". I worked as several different positions for both band including: Journalist, Publicist, writer/director/producer for music videos, and other areas of expertise. I have been writing for most of my life, and there is nothing I enjoy more. I recently got into poetry, and am currently working on a poetry collection. My immediate influences are: Simon R. Green, Kurt Vonnegut, Richard Matheson, and Charles Bukowski.
I have written a few books and several short stories. I am currently working on my latest novel which is a mix of Science Fiction, Biblical History, and Dark Humor. Next, I plan on writing a book of essays on hypothetical masks that human beings wear.
