Gary Kruse

Author of Badlands

Gary Kruse began writing after seeing “The Craft” in the cinema and wondering who would win in a supernatural royal rumble; the girls from “The Craft” or those terrors of Santa Carla, the Lost Boys?

All these years later, he’s still writing about outsiders, broken and found families and coming to terms with who you are. 

Living in Hornchurch, Essex with his wife and two sons, Gary writes around his day job in sports and leisure. His short fiction has been published in print anthologies and on-line, and his story “Hope in the Dark” won the Writers’ Forum magazine story competition for the November 2021 issue. 

His dark suspense novel Badlands was inspired by the wild North Cornwall coast around St. Agnes.
