His fiction has appeared in many magazines, anthologies, audio books and on websites, and some of his stories have been translated to Russian. His novel Body Art is scheduled for a German edition release later in 2017 by Festa Verlag. His fiction has drawn praise from Publisher’s Weekly, Rue Morgue Magazine, Cemetery Dance and more. While primarily a horror writer, he also writes crime fiction, literary fiction, westerns, and whatever else his brain sets ablaze.
Born in New York in 1977, Triana was yanked down to Florida at the age of nine and was forced to grow up there, much to his chagrin. Luckily he had heavy metal music and John Carpenter movies to get by on. Once he was old enough, he escaped, and since then he has lived up and down the east coast, from Boston to the rural Carolinas. He has worked on farms, in grocery stores, on loading docks, at a video store (in the VHS days), and is very happy to not have to do any of that anymore. He is obsessed with all aspects of the horror genre, and has amassed a staggering collection of cult films, horror books, movie memorabilia, busts and Halloween masks. He also has a very strong love of animals.
He works as a professional dog trainer and lives in North Carolina with his wife.
