Austin Williams

AUSTIN WILLIAMS is the author of Crimson Orgy, the acclaimed thriller that Publishers Weekly hailed for its unique blend of horror, humor, and suspense in 2008 as “an unnervingly enjoyable debut.” His new novel, The Platinum Loop, continues the delirious storyline of one of Crimson Orgy’s most memorable characters.

Based on a cult following generated through online word of mouth, movie rights for Crimson Orgy were optioned shortly after publication. A feature film version is currently in development, with Williams adapting the screenplay from his book. More news can be found here.

Austin Williams is also the co-author (with Erik Quisling) of Straight Whisky: A Living History of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ’n’ Roll on the Sunset Strip, a seminal look at the L.A. music scene released to rave reviews in 2003.

His next novel, Harpoon City, will be published by Upaya House in 2012.
