About Derek Milman

He was born in New York City and raised in Westchester County, NY. In grade school, he wrote short stories about aliens, submarines, and magical strawberries. He often sent story ideas to computer game companies, which always resulted in an awkward phone call informing him that, at eight years old, he was too young for their payroll. During his high school years, Derek published a humor magazine (sold in local shops) that caught the attention of the New York Times, which featured him in a profile.

He studied English, Theater, and Creative Writing at Northwestern University. Originally a playwright and screenwriter, Derek’s first play was staged in New York City right after he graduated from college, and he went on to receive his MFA in acting from Yale. A classically trained thespian (Derek’s favorite word), Derek worked with two Academy Award winning film directors (who probably have no recollection of Derek’s involvement) on numerous TV shows and films.

He has taught at a film school in NY, worked at a yoga studio, and was a DJ in a Lower East Side club (if you tipped him well enough, he would pretend to have that New Order B-side no one has ever heard). The author began writing YA fiction a few years ago.

He currently lives in Brooklyn, where he writes fiction full time, stares at the Manhattan skyline while playing video games, and buys hemp-made lime green hoodies.

So that’s what I gotta say on that. Wanna eat?”

 “This is a house full of misfits, everyone unmoored from the world outside these gates. They don’t belong out there. They live in a constantly moving dreamworld of imagined horrors, spurts of gore, skulking monsters—creatures more aberrant than themselves. After all, it takes true misfits to make believable monsters.”
