About Me


Growing up as a long-haired, hard-rocking kid in a small town where football doubles as a religion can give someone a pretty cynical outlook on life. Fortunately for Jeff McFarland, a love for reading the darker tales provided an escape. A passion that began with the likes of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books and Lois Duncan’s thrillers soon spiraled out of control to include the likes of Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, Cormac McCarthy, and even H.P. Lovecraft.

Naturally, out of a love for reading came a love for writing. Now, Jeff has a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature at Chadron State College and is stumbling his way through adulthood. Whether it’s fantasy, horror, sci-Fi, thriller, or just plain weird, Jeff’s loyalties lie with the dark side of literature. He has work published in CSC’s newspaper, “The Eagle,” in Sirens Call Publications’s bi-monthly e-zine, and on Amazon.com.

Jeff would like to thank his friends, his fans (if they exist), and above all, his parents for their love and support every step of the way.

This blog started as an assignment for English 438 at Chadron State College, or rather, Adolescent Literature. Any musings on things I have read, potentially creative writing, and just general nonsense will make appearances in this place. There are many posts about strange things. The language is often foul. Read at your own risk.

If you have stumbled here by accident, then it is too late for you. You cannot un-see the horror.

  1. Listened to your story the Highway on the No Sleep podcast. I have to say it was most excellent! Thank you for an amazing story! Nice, simple but horrifying!

      Hey, thanks very much! A lot of people seemed to think it was the weakest of the bunch, but hey, I made it on to the season finale of the NoSleep Podcast. I can’t really complain!
      I appreciate the kind words. They really do help keep me going.

      • I thought that you did a fascinating job with the realistic dialogue and the believable characters. Those 2 things in particular pulled me in and the horror was that much more visceral for them.
        Truth be told, you inspired me to make sure my stories have those elements so the horror really packs a punch!
        Again, excellent work, sir! Let no one tell you different!
