"There are all manner of hauntings: of places, of things, of people. There are hauntings of the mind, just as there are hauntings of the body and of the soul. But the worst sort of haunting is the kind which infects the spirit, entwines with it, subsumes it. The kind that cannot be easily exorcised.

eFiction magazine calls Saul an author armed with "a PhD and a whacked out sense of humor."Saul spent his formative years in a leaky century-old house overlooking the Erie Canal in Upstate New York. His bedroom was a refurbished attic, which he shared with all manner of creatures, not all, he is convinced, flesh and blood.After bouncing around the US and Europe for several years, he settled down to pursue a career in the sciences, opting to study the mysteries of human molecular genetics. But even positions as an experimental biologist, teacher, manager and biotech entrepreneur couldn't keep him from his true passion as a storyteller.He now writes speculative fiction full time from his home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although his house is now attic-less and waterproof, he continues to be haunted by a variety of creatures, including a wife, kids, four dogs, three cats, six chickens, a wayward rooster, and one very grumpy possum. They are all flesh and blood.Except, maybe, for the possum, which he's convinced is the reincarnated spirit of Jack Torrance.
