Axel Howerton

Axel Howerton is a former entertainment journalist, and the Arthur Ellis Award nominated author of the detective caper Hot Sinatra; the modern gothic fairytale Furr; the zombie novella Living Dead at Zigfreid & Roy; and the noir fable Con Morte. His forthcoming “Wolf & Devil” urban fantasy series for Tyche Books kicks off with “Demon Days” in Fall 2019. Axel is also a published poet, short story author and essayist, creative writing instructor, speaker, panelist and genre “expert.” He is a former regional director of the Crime Writers of Canada, and owner/managing editor of Coffin Hop Press Ltd.

When he’s not on-duty as a “purveyor of literary badassery” and “hometown anti-hero,” Axel wanders the foothills of Southern Alberta with his two brilliant sons, and a wife that is way out of his league.
