About Carver

Dark fantasy scenery with skulls, surreal monument and black lightnings

My name is Carver Pike. I’m the darker, more twisted alter ego of romance and erotica writer Chris Genovese. I grew up watching horror movies and burying my nose in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Christopher Pike and RL Stine were my two favorite authors as a young teen and as I grew older I learned to appreciate the greats like Stephen King and Bentley Little. Movies like Dario Argento’s “Demons” and Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead” made me realize that horror doesn’t have to just be creepy. It can seriously kick ass.

Three other writers I have so much respect for are Dr. Seuss (the man was a creative genius), George R.R. Martin (he’s a master at character development), and Shel Silverstein (I like to think my poetry is a darker, sexier, and wilder version of what he might write).

Horror and dark fantasy are my real passions, but I love mixing a little sexy in with the scary. Check out all the novellas and novels I have to offer on the “Carver Pike Books” tab. If you like what you read, please leave me a review. That means so much in this game.
