Known for his bestselling “SEAL Team 666” series, Ochse draws upon his experience serving in Afghanistan in crafting these military horror novels, about an elite group of soldiers protecting America from paranormal threats. The latest, Reign of Evil, hit stores in October. But even outside that popular series he has been garnering acclaim for over 10 years. His first novel, Scarecrow Gods, won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel. He also has a new “Task Force Ombra” novel, Grunt Traitor, coming in July.
Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer know Ochse’s wife Navarro. She has authored 7 “Buffyverse” novels, and won the Stoker Award for The Willow Files, Vol. 2. She has also written numerous movie tie-ins, from Hellboy to Species.
But outside her work on established properties, she is an acclaimed horror novelist in her own right. Her 1993 debut AfterAge and its 1995 follow-up deadrush were both shortlisted for Stokers.
Navarro is currently working on the “Dark Redemption” series which follows a demoness attempting to gain redemption on Earth.
