I aspire to create quality supernatural fiction and dark fantasy--steeped in the traditions of Poe and Lovecraft


Background Information

I have been an aficionado of the horror genre most of my life. The fascination began as a child, staying up late and watching "Creature Features" late at night with my father. I grew up in one of the golden eras of horror films--Hammer Horror was in full swing and as I grew older the iconoclasts came on the scene--Carpenter, Craven and Argento. Weekends at the drive-ins (often the only venues that would show these features) were a mainstay of my early adult life.

Meanwhile, I was reading constantly (as I still do) all the masters of horror, working my way through the entire canon of Poe and Lovecraft multiple times. Harlan Ellison and EC Comics, and later Stephen King were also a main ingredient of my literary diet. I was introduced to Tolkien and Stephen R. Donaldson at an early age as well and also enjoy Epic Fantasy.

Though still required to maintain full-time employment, I spend most of my spare time writing fiction and screenplays. I am the author of the short fiction "On the Verge of Madness," and my stories have appeared in numerous themed anthologies.

My second collection "Silhouette of Darkness" was released in September 2012 in e-book format by Musa Publishing.

I serve on the editorial staff for Static Movement. We publish themed anthologies in all genres of speculative fiction. The link below is updated with the collections for which I am currently taking submissions.

I review books for The Horror Review--see the link below for that also.

My current writing project is my first novel. Though still untitled, it is the first installment in a proposed series--"Intrepid City." In this alternate universe demons, humans and halflings coexist in an often volatile climate of danger and intrigue.
