The son of a Southern Illinois pastor, Brian P. Easton grew up watching classic horror films and spaghetti westerns during the 1970's.
Easton includes in his resume such jobs as: trapper for the National Parks Service, Wyoming cowboy, predator control for cattle ranchers, truck driver, newspaper composition foreman and rail technician on the Southern Pacific Railroad.
A researcher of the occult since 1985, he earned a degree in anthropology to further his study. Most of his works include various occult references.
His primary literary influences are H.P. Lovecraft and Cormac McCarthy; especially the latter's novel, Blood Meridian.
His first novel, When the Autumn Moon is Bright (Autobiography of a Werewolf Hunter) was originally self-published through iUniverse in 2003, as was the sequel, Heart of Scars in 2008. Both books were finalists in the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPYs) during their respective years.
