At an early age Cain heard a reading of the Baba Yaga folklore and fell in love with dark fiction and horror. That love was nurtured during his formative years in the suburbs of Chicago, listening to his grandfather spin far-fetched tales beside the glow of a barrel fire. Shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and One Step Beyond furthered his wonder of the unknown, the unexplainable, and he’s been writing ever since. In his free time, when he isn’t reading or writing, he enjoys the outdoors, fine art, and sports.
