Welcome to the “The Haunted Pen,” the official website of Dave Burnham – horror and dark fiction author. I write chilling short stories, novellas, and novels.
Take some time to explore my site, where you can discover more about my quest to become a published author – and anything else horror related I think you’ll find interesting. Thank you, I appreciate you visiting.
Please contact me directly at dmbhauntedpen (at) gmail.com if you’d like to know more about my writing.
The right words are better than a 1,000 pictures…
“Excellent! Plenty of action, a good story line and never a dull moment. The gripping opening reeled me in and kept me hooked until the very end. I savored each and every word. ”
Shelley Kelvin on “All…Fall…Down!”
“If you love Horror, you will absolutely love this!”
Dene Stark on “The Mask That Always Smiles…”
“Great story! The ending is a heartbreaking twist.”
J.H. Moncrieff on “Two Minutes to Midnight”
“Excellent story. The tale is very well constructed, well written and scary but not in the typical gory way. Kept me very entertained, I savored each and every word.”
Steven Grant on “Purgatory Road”
“I loved it. Those monks looking up the definition of ‘celibacy’ on Google nearly made me laugh out loud! More, please!”
Agnieszka Hałas on “A Bad Case of Death – When Drebin Met Marlowe”
“A very well written horror and mystery story from a talented author. This is the second story by the author that I’ve read and he definitely has a gift for words. The story is spooky as hell. Fans of Christmas horror stories will love it. Recommended!”
Katherine Burke on “He’s Making A List”
