Deb Hoag has been writing professionally for over 20 years, starting at a weekly alternative newspaper in Detroit, The Metro Times. Her work there included editing, writing a column and organizing such events as the Detroit Music Awards and the newspaper’s yearly photography contest and Best Of issues. In the early 90s, Deb went back to school and was awarded a PhD in clinical psychology. She has run with Apaches, Hell’s Angels, and now a fearsome cabal of cross-genre writers from around the world. These terrify her the most.

Collins has also written for comic books, including the Swamp Thing series, Jason Vs. Leatherface, Predator: Hell Come A Walkin and her own one-shot Dhampire: Stillborn.
