Leah is talking with Laird Barron tonight.
Born in Alaska, Barron raised huskies and worked in the construction and fishing industries for much of his youth. He moved to the Pacific Northwest during the mid-1990s and dedicated himself to writing. His debut collection, The Imago Sequence, was published in 2007, followed by two more collections and a pair of novels. A multiple Locus, World Fantasy, and Bram Stoker award nominee, he is also a three-time winner of the Shirley Jackson award.
