Bill Mulligan has turned his lifelong love of horror and science fiction films into a life which, when not spent teaching science to high school students, revolves around indie films and the celebration of genre cinema. He has worked as a screenwriter, actor, makeup and special effects artist and director on four feature films and nearly two dozen shorts. He can also be found writing at Gruesomemagazine.com and as part of the Decades of Horror podcast, waxing poetic over the charms of A*P*E, The Giant Spider Invasion and Dracula vs Frankenstein, often with a straight face. He has spent much of the last year trying to expand his award-winning short film 400 Ways to Kill a Vampire into a novel and is determined to finish it in 2017 or die trying, either result is as good as the other. This is his first RavenCon and he is eager to see old friends and make new ones.
