About Mr Brown:
Alexander S. Brown, quite literally, was raised on horror stories. Friday nights were family nights filled with wonderfully chilling tales! His grandfather introduced him to the world of horror and suspense, while his father offered stories of the urban legends and ghostly myths of Vicksburg. Not to be left out, his mother introduced him to the world of the paranormal. No wonder Mr. Brown wanted to learn as much as he could about the spiritual realm and many tales of folklore.

At an early age, while the other children played, Brown would focus his time and attention on the works created by the biggest names in horror today. His passion for nightmares were anchored in two new loves discovered in high school: creative writing and photography.

Most of Brown’s work comes from his dreams, but some also comes from reality. The works inspired by events other than his dreams are usually exaggerated versions of true events and everyday issues. But, regardless of their origin, raw emotion is woven throughout all his stories.
