Hailing from the windswept plains of eastern Montana, Clay has now set down proverbial roots in the Pacific Northwest. On the days it's not raining he likes to surf and climb rocks. During the other ninety-eight percent of the year, he enjoys writing, reading, and playing board games with his partner Deanna. Clay has been published in Jennifer Brozek's 99 Fleeting Fantasies, Writer's Forum, and Simily's Selected Horror Stories of the Month: Halloween Edition. His debut survival/horror novella Crevasse was published in April 2022 by the small hybrid press City Stone Publishing.
