Justin Park cut his literary teeth as the horror writer J. R. Park, releasing his first book, Terror Byte, in 2014. Since then he helped form the Sinister Horror Company, a publishing imprint he still runs.
Sinister Horror Company quickly became recognised for its varied styles across the horror spectrum and the top quality of its output, making it one of the most highly respected independent horror presses.
Justin's writing is critically regarded, and noted for his versatility, experimentation, tightly structured plotting and lyrical prose.
Teaming up with the UK's leading extreme horror author, Matt Shaw, Justin began working on feature films.
