About / Bibliography

thomasmmalafarinaThomas M. Malafarina is a horror fiction author from the South Heidelberg Twp area of Berks County, Pennsylvania. He was born July 23, 1955 in Ashland, Schuylkill County, PA where he lived until moving to Berks County in 1979.

Many of Thomas’s stories take place in his native Schuylkill County and also in Berks County settings. Thomas’s books are published by Sunbury Press of Mechanicsburg, PA.

Thomas’s early novels included 99 Souls and Burn Phone both of which are now out of print, having been reworked and re-titled by Thomas in 2016. They were replaced by the new books, It Waits Below  and Burner. His novels, Fallen Stones and Eye Contact  are currently still available although these two are also being reworked by Thomas and will eventually be re-titled and re-released. Other novels include two in his Dead Kill series,  Dead Kill Book 1: The Ridge Of Death and Dead Kill Book 2: The Ridge of Change. The third installment in the Dead Kill series, Dead Kill Book 3: The Ridge of War is scheduled for release in late 2017.

His short story collection 13 Nasty Endings is no longer available having been replaced by 13 Deadly Endings.  Several of his earlier short story collections, Gallery of Horror, Malafarina Maleficarum Volume 1, Malafarina Maleficarum Volume 2 are no longer available.  His other short story collections, Ghost Shadows, and Malaformed Realities Volume 1 are currently available. Two more short story collections, Malaformed Realities Volume 2 and Volume 3 will be released in 2017. He also has a collection of single-panel cartoons called Yes I Smelled It Too. In addition, Thomas’s stories appear in many anthologies currently on sale on Amazon.

Thomas has had a life-long love of the horror and monster genre in all its form of books, movies and art. Annually, Thomas creates works of horror art, props and scenery, which he donates to a local non-profit Halloween Barn Of Horror.

Thomas lives just outside of Wernersville, PA with his wife JoAnne. They have three grown children and three grandchildren.
