Justin Bienvenue is an author and poet. As a young boy, he was always told by friends and family that he had quite a vivid imagination and if only he could write down on paper what he could create in his mind. However, despite being told he had a knack for being creative, he didn't pursue writing right away. It wasn't until his freshman year of high school that he began writing poetry and developed a passion for writing.
In 2010, he decided he wanted the public to enjoy his poetry so he decided to write his first book, The Macabre Masterpiece: Poems of Horror and Gore. The idea for a book of horror poetry came after seeing that he had compiled a decent amount of horror poems and horror was his preferred genre. From there he wrote a few dozen more and his first book was born. After that he started writing short stories, continues to write poetry and has written five more books. His second book, A Bloody Bloody Mess in the Wild Wild West is a western horror published in 2014 and he followed it up with another book of poetry on the contemporary side with Like A Box of Chocolates. He enjoys writing in different genres other than horror such as weird westerns and crime thrillers. His books take a reader on an entertaining journey and leave them in suspense wondering what will happen next and wanting more. Aside from his six published works he also has over a dozen short stories and poems which have been published in anthologies and magazines. His sixth novel, The Wax Factory is a Gothic horror and is the first in a three part series.
He is a bit of a Twitterholic and can usually be found on there most of the time. He also has a series of blogs on Goodreads and Pinterest called Hundred Year Old Horror where he analyzes works from hundreds of years ago and connects them to the present. He also has several series of short stories and poems which can be found on Wattpad and Channillo.
When he's not writing away he's a sports fan and enjoys football and baseball and is a fan of the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox. His interests also include History, Egyptology, Ufology, Piracy, The Wild West, Civil War History, The Bermuda Triangle and listening to music.
