About

Some say Derek M. Koch was born 30 years too late. Some say he spends too much time watching classic monster movie trailers on YouTube. And some just want him to take off his luchador mask and stop writing about fighting monsters.

Derek is the creator of the Supernatural Solutions: Monster Hunter for Fire series, and the upcoming Solomon Group series of novels. He’s also practicing his horseback riding and six-gun shooting for his upcoming Weird Western series They Call Him Boneyard.

If you can’t find him at Monster Kid Writer, you can find Derek producing the award-winning Monster Kid Radio, the weekly podcast celebrating the classic, and sometimes not-so-classic, genre cinema of yesteryear; or you can find him on Monster Kid Radio’s YouTube channel. When not online, he can be found at home in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, his cats, and his luchador masks.

And he knows how to use them.
