About Evan Baughfman
Evan Baughfman works in a very scary place: a middle school! (He’s a teacher.) He writes all genres, but horror is where he’s most comfortable. His horror fiction has been published in numerous anthologies, including titles from Improbable Press, 4 Horsemen Publications, No Bad Books Press, and Grinning Skull Press. Evan has penned a collection of 13 short scary stories titled THE EMACIATED MAN AND OTHER TERRIFYING TALES FROM POE MIDDLE SCHOOL, published by Thurston Howl Publications. His spooky novella, VANISHING OF THE 7TH GRADE, is now available from D&T Publishing.
Evan has also adapted a number of his short prose works into screenplays, of which "The Tell-Tale Art," “A Perfect Circle,” and “The Creaky Door” have won awards in various film festival competitions.
Additionally, much of Evan's writing success has been as a playwright. He’s had many different plays produced across the globe. His children's play, “R.O.M.3.O. and Julia” (Romeo and Juliet with robots) has been published in PLAYS Magazine. His play for young adults, “Lipstick and Heroics,” is available through YouthPLAYS, as is Evan's all-ages script, "Sprout Wants Out". In addition, his middle grade play, "Percy Pangolin Wants to Go Viral," is published by Heuer Publishing. Heuer has also published Evan's play, "A Taste of Amontillado"(an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado") and his script, "Untragically Ever After". Next Stage Press has published Evan's horror-plays-for teens, "Fear Pressure" and "The Dodo Challenge".
Online theater education resource, Drama Notebook, has added many of Evan’s children’s plays to its catalog. His plays can also be found at New Play Exchange.

What miracles can one hundred debut to bestselling authors do with 100 words?
We all have a fascination for things that scare us—the thrill, the heart-stopping jump scares, the terrifying suspense. From the youngest age, we’re fascinated by the fiendish and furry, the creepiest critters, the naughty and the nasty. Horror is all around us, from the clowns who hide under our bed, to the things we might drag up from the brook at the bottom of the garden, and the zombies who crawl our streets.
As author, Megan Feehley, so beautifully says; there is beauty just before the terror…a silken breath taken before the spill of righteousness…the warmth of a licking flame preceding the scald.
So, close the drapes, check the locks, turn on all the lights and get comfortable. But don’t close your eyes…
Never close your eyes...
If you’ve only ever exposed to mainstream superheroes and supervillains, or this is your first foray into fantasy cape-wearers, you’re bound to love these authors’ takes on the genre—adventure, horror, and wonder fiction in five hundred words.
Meet Votex, the villain—she rips people apart with her bare hands but is always the loving partner. Or Whitefire who melts all that surrounds with a ball of white-hot fire. And Charlie, the unlikely hero with crimson eyes, creating napalm skies.
