NEWS UPDATE!- AUGUST 18, 2014
First publication of the year! My story "Mr. Lloyd at the Harborside Zombie Treatment Center" is included in the Bizarro zombie anthology THE BIZARRO ZOMBIE ANTHOLOGY THAT WOULDN'T DIE! Even if you think you're so over the whole zombie thing, check this out, because these stories take zombies where nobody ever imagined before. Now available for preorder! And check out that gorgeous cover!
I've gotten negative feedback on "Awakening of the Dream Beast" from publishers, so I'm putting it on the shelf for the time being.
I've been invited to submit a story to an upcoming YA Bizarro anthology, so I whipped up a story with characters from the as yet unpublished novella "Adventures of Mort, the Walking, Talking Dead Man."
"David Bowie is Trying to Kill Me" is still awaiting publication. More details as they become available.

About my writing:
When I was a teenager I knew I wanted to be a writer. I won a writing contest in the local newspaper when I was 13 and becoming a writer was my dream. My taste in reading was already trending toward the weird. Comic books, H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Poe, Algernon Blackwood, Brad Steiger - they all set my imagination soaring. I had a hand me down Underwood typewriter, and I diligently pounded out my fantasies. I managed a few publications, mainly in the type of books that encouraged the contributors to buy multiple copies for their family and friends.
I was also deeply into theatre, so for a long time all my writing was for the stage. I studied briefly with my favorite playwright, Megan Terry, and I even ran my own company for a couple of years. Eventually I got tired of losing money, and beating my head against a wall, and I gave up writing. I tried to focus on "the real world." I founded an internet radio station that featured odd, unusual, forgotten and bizarre music, as well as new independent artists. I won awards. I even found a bit of an audience during the month of October each year with an annual Halloween marathon.
Then one fateful evening I ordered a book a friend from an online horror forum had written and everything came rushing back. I should be doing this. Why WASN'T I doing this? Soon after, I enrolled in his writing workshop and the floodgates were opened. My writing was better than it had ever been. I regret the decades I spent not writing. I would be so much farther along now. I'm trying to make up for lost time!
I write what is refered to these days as "speculative fiction." It's a catch-all term for anything weird- science fiction, horror, fantasy, and several other related sub-genres. Check my writing out, and let me know what you think!
