Evan Baughfman works in a very scary place: a middle school! He writes all genres, but horror is where he’s most comfortable. His short horror fiction has been published in various anthologies and magazines.

Much of Evan’s writing success has been as a playwright. He’s had many different plays produced across the globe.

Additionally, Evan has adapted a number of his short stories into screenplays, of which “The Emaciated Man” and “The Creaky Door” have won awards in various film festival competitions.

His short story collection, Classroom Doom, consisting of thirteen spooky tales set at Edgar Allan Poe Middle School, will be released by Thurston Howl Publications in 2020.
