Ray Van Horn Jr.
About myself, I have been an entertainment journalist and concert photographer for eight years and have conducted over 300 interviews with musicians, actors, directors, visual artists and authors, everyone from Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, Bruce Campbell and Nina Blackwood to Mary Forsberg Weiland. My work has been published in multiple outlets such as Fangoria.com, Dee Snider's House of Hair Online, About.com, AMP, Metal Maniacs, Hails & Horns, Pit, DVD Review, Horror News.net, Music Dish and many others. My website The Metal Minute was awarded Best Personal Blog of 2009 by Metal Hammer magazine. I've been a reporter and photographer for local media such as Metromix, an affiliate of The Baltimore Sun, The Northern News and The Emmitsburg Dispatch. I am a former NHL analyst for The Hockey Nut and my fiction has appeared in numerous outlets including the trade paperback Playing Solitaire. I also won Quantum Muse's fiction contest in 1999. I recently finished my second novel, "SAVED BY ZERO" and am already at work on my next novel, tentatively titled "REUNION."
