Stephen Paul Sayers grew up in Falmouth, Massachusetts and spent his first thirty-five years in New England before joining the University of Missouri as a research professor. When he’s not in his laboratory, he spends his time writing and devouring his favorite forms of genre fiction—horror, suspense, and thrillers. His short fiction has appeared in Unfading Daydream. A Taker of Morrows is his debut novel and the first in the planned Caretakers series. He divides his time between Columbia, Missouri and Plymouth, Massachusetts writing and teaching.
