Spooky Empire


I’ll be at Spooky Empire over the weekend starting with a panel and signing at the Creator’s Track book table Oct. 26.

Copies of Dark Hours and Disciples of the Serpent will be available as well as paper editions of Quoth the Raven and Infernal Ink magazine featuring two new short stories, “A Cooler of Craft Brew” and “What the Black Water Knows.”

Look for me amid all the other excitement.




New Stories

Two new stories are arriving, just in time for Halloween.


A Cooler of Craft Brew, my retelling of an Edgar Allan Poe Tale is featured in the new anthology Quoth the Raven from Camden Park Press. The collection features poems and stories that update Poe’s tales for the 21st Century. Order here.


What the Black Water Knows is a very dark, erotic Lovecraftian tale included in the Fall/Winter 2018 issue of Infernal Ink magazine. Order here.

New Cover – Bob Eggleton


Here’s the cover on my new book. It’s a 70,000-word Lovecraftian novel. Design is by David Dodd of Crossroad Press with art by multiple Hugo-winner Bob Eggleton.

Horror Flash Reading


At W.T. Bland Public Library’s DreadFest recently reading some wicked bits of flash fiction with my friend Tom Lucas, author of Pax Titanus. 

Custom Scent in Sanitarium.

Sanitarium 46 2016-07-05 06.27.34

I have a brief tale called “Custom Scent” in the new issue of Sanitarium magazine, a really interesting little publication that carries its theme throughout. Artwork includes case files wrapped around each story, and there’s much more. Get it here.

Interview about the short thriller Dark Hours

Mercedes Fox was kind enough to interview me about Dark Hours, my new novella.

You can read it here.
