KillerCon is the brainchild of author Wrath James White, who is not only enmeshed in the horror/thriller community as a writer (author of Succulent Prey, Population Zero, and His Pain) but has extensive experience in coordinating and promoting sporting events and concerts.
Wrath is joined by writer Monica J. O’Rourke (author of Suffer the Flesh, Experiments in Human Nature, and co-author of Poisoning Eros along with Wrath James White.) Monica chaired the 2005 World Horror Convention in New York City, as well as several New York City-based Stoker Awards banquets, and has many years’ marketing experience.
