A native of Arkansas, Ms. Collins currently makes her home in Virginia with a Boston terrier named Chopper.

Author Gene DeRosa was terrified when he watched his first horror film at almost ten years old. The film was Friday the 13th (1980). Once the initial terror wore off, he was hooked on horror and has been a fan since. Along the way, he also developed a love of all things trivia. He has been part of online trivia communities as a player, game writer, and host for more than fifteen years. He decided to marry these two obsessions into one and write 6-13 A Friday the 13th Movie Trivia Book. It is a comprehensive compilation of more than 700 trivia questions and facts covering all of the original films (yes, even Part 9), as well as Freddy vs. Jason and the 2009 franchise reboot. He reached out to Ari Lehman, who portrayed Jason Voorhees in the original film, to write the foreword for the book. Lehman, who now tours the U.S. and Europe with his band First Jason, loved the idea and shared some of his on-set memories as a fourteen year old boy. The reception his inaugural book has received from horror fans has led to the planning of more horror-related trivia books. He has also begun offering authentic signed merchandise from many of the Friday the 13th franchise cast members with plans to continue expanding the names available. Items like photos, posters, replica hockey masks, and more which can all be found in his online store at www.samsonpublishingcompany.com. He is currently working on one for the Halloween movie franchise, which is due out June 13th, with plans for A Nightmare on Elm Street book after that. With so much great horror out there, and such a die-hard fan base of horror lovers, who knows where he will go from there.

Clu Gulager was born William Martin Gulager Oklahoma. His nickname was given to him by his father for the clu-clu birds (known in English as martins, like his middle name) that were nesting at the Gulager home at the time Clu was born. He grew up on his uncle’s ranch as a cowhand and when he was old enough he joined the United States Marine Corps for a stint from 1946-1948. He got the acting bug being in army plays so when he left he used the GI Bill of rights to study acting. Clu’s career started off as bit parts on popular western shows usually playing the heavy. Shows like Wanted Dead or Alive, Have Gun Will Travel, Laramie, Riverboat. He scored big with The Untouchables as Mad Dog Coll which led to him being offered Billy the Kid on The Tallman from 1960-1961 which also starred Barry Sullivan as Pat Garrett. The show was pulled after two seasons by congress because they didn’t like the idea that kids were seeing the outlaw Billy the Kid as a hero. Clu’s next big break was playing Deputy Emmett Ryker on the The Virginian from 1964-1968. During this time he also fared very well being Lee Marvin’s side kick in the 1964 TV film The Killers, which was considered too violent for TV so it went to theaters.
