Shaun Hutson (born 1958) is a writer of novels including horror novels and dark urban thrillers. Under his own name and various pen names, he has written at least thirty novels.

Background[edit]

A native of Letchworth Garden City in Hertfordshire, England,[1] Hutson now lives and writes in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. According to his own official website, Hutson was expelled from school and worked a number of odd jobs from which he was fired from before becoming a professional writer.

Hutson is a die-hard supporter of the Liverpool Football Club.

Career[edit]

Writer[edit]

Hutson began his writing career in the early 1980s with the horror novel The Skull. Although mainly limited to the United Kingdom in terms of publishing, Hutson received exposure in the United States after being profiled by Chas Balun in Fangoria magazine.

Film work[edit]

Hutson wrote the UK film novelization of The Terminator, which was published in early 1985. In the new millennium, Hutson returned to film adaptations with a series of novelizations of Hammer Film Productions via Random House UK.

Slugs was the basis for the film of the same title directed by Juan Piquer Simon.[2] A sequel based off Hutson's sequel novel Breeding Ground was announced, but never came into fruition.

Hutson wrote a screenplay for The Figgis Brothers (Jason Figgis & Jonathan Figgis) for their company October Eleven Pictures' feature film titled Box. Shooting was set to commence late Spring 2009.[3] The film apparently remains unproduced.
