Hi, I am DK, the creator of Ugly Tales.

Writing started as a personal hobby for me but it soon became a big part of who I am as a person. While I was holding down my full-time corporate jobs, I kept attempting to create side gigs in creative writing.


Between 2012-2015, I ran a satirical blog called 'God of Absurdity'. During this time, I started being plagued by some mental health issues and my writing style and themes of interest both went through a drastic transformation. Around 2016, I shut down God of Absurdity and started writing about disturbed, emotionally unstable people. A few years later, I published my first novella - Based on Lies. Having dipped my toe into it and liking that feeling of wetness in my feet, I have focused on learning the craft of publishing for a niche audience. And who'd have thunk it, I found an audience that is as intrigued about the stories of dysfunctional people as I am.

But if I have invited you into my twisted world, I have a responsibility to engage you to the best of my ability. And thus, Ugly Tales was born; a go-to place for disturbing psychological fiction books. We publish original novellas and short stories as well as blog articles related to our kind of books!  You will soon find Ugly Tales originals on Amazon and some other online book retailers, but we are constantly looking to improve the experience we deliver to you. So, don't forget to join the tribe and get notified about cool new updates.
