About D.W. Whitlock


D.W. Whitlock, author of Crucible of Fear, has been a storyteller for most of his life. Starting with short stories scribbled in crayon, animation flip-books, stop-motion and later CG animation for television and video games. While pursuing a career in animation, writing has always been the first step, from short descriptions to detailed backstories. As a life-long reader and book lover, crafting thriller novels felt like the natural evolution of those first forays into writing.


When not writing, D.W. enjoys gaming, spending time with his family and Triumph Motorcycles.


D.W. lives in California with his wife, son and French bulldog.
