Lucas Astor

Lucas Astor is from New York, has resided in Central America and the Middle East, and traveled through Europe. He lives a very private, virtually reclusive lifestyle, preferring to spend time with a close-knit group of friends than be in the spotlight.

He is an author and poet with a penchant for telling stories that delve into the dark side of the human psyche. He likes to explore the evil that exists, not just in the world, but right next door behind a smiling face.

Archery, photography, wine making, listening to jazz, blues, and classical music, and helping endangered species are some of his interests.

One of his favorite quotes is: “It’s better to be silent than be a fool.” ~Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird)

Lucas has several books including the MAGNUS BLACKWELL SERIES and THE CHIMERA EFFECT SERIES, both co-written with Alexandrea Weis, and the St. Benedict Young Adult novel series with first book, DEATH BY THE RIVER, and penned the lyrics for the Bram Stoker Awards® Nominee, SPEAK NO EVIL.
