Wendell Cooper

“Wendell lives in an old farm house with two cats. An agronomist by trade, he has written technical articles for over thirty years. Nine years ago he turned to fiction and self published a thriller, The Pearl Spider. Since then he has traditionally published horror stories in four anthologies. When he is not writing or walking the fields of Southeastern Virginia, Wendell kayaks Chuckatuck Creek and the Blackwater River. 
His strong scientific background often finds its way into his writings; his monsters are often more than plausible, they are very close to real, perhaps a single,small mistake away from slithering out of a bio weapons lab.
