Weldon Burge, a native of Delaware, is a writer, publisher, and full-time editor. His short fiction has appeared in many publications, including various magazines and anthologies (such as  Crimeucopia,  The Best of the Horror Society 2013, Pellucid Lunacy: An Anthology of Psychological Horror, Ghosts and Demons, Beach Pulp, and  Scary Stuff, just to name a few). His stories have been adapted for podcast presentation by Drabblecast. Weldon  was also a frequent writer for  Suspense Magazine, often writing author interviews. He has led workshops and panel discussions at workshops and bookstores.

Earlier in  his  freelance career,  Weldon wrote more nonfiction articles than  he can count, including content for newspapers, magazines, and even website content.  He was once a prolific garden writer, and for many years has written for an educational consulting firm. But, more recently,  Weldon's writing has steered away from nonfiction and has been largely focused on fiction.

In 2012,  Weldon and his wife, Cindy, founded  Smart Rhino Publications, an indie publishing company focusing primarily on horror and suspense/thriller books, many of them anthologies. To date, the company has published 17 books. Weldon's debut thriller, Harvester of Sorrow, the first in the Ezekiel Marrs series, has joined the Smart Rhino imprint. He is also currently writing a paranormal suspense novel that may also be the start of another series. He intends to stay on the novel-writing rollercoaster for the future.

He has done workshops and other author events with the Kirkwood, Bear, and Kent County Public Libraries, as well as workshops with the Newark Arts Alliance, and presented to the Maryland Writers Association.
