The last short story

This is the last short story I’ll post in a while, as I’m getting back to working on a new novel. This one is called The Rake. It’s a grim story of things going wrong for a cop, and his encounter with the paranormal….

Yet another short story

Here’s another short story I wrote. It’s a little sad, but it’s based on a true story: The Burglar Hope you guys like it! Don’t forget, you have until Friday to download my 2 new books, for free on Kindle. They ain’t great, but…

Published!

Well, self published anyway. I got tired of rejection letters from agents who didn’t even want to read the books, so I published them on my own. I will be working on marketing them in the future. A Pack of Dogs is the story…

new short story

I’ve posted a new short story, called A Visit to Langley. This one is a little long, at 8k words, but it was a blast to write. It’s HP Lovecraft meets the Twilight Zone. As always, please enjoy, and, if you get a chance,…

Suicide and writing

I realize this isn’t a fun thing to talk about… Just because of the brain I have, when I write, I invariably include a suicide that one of my protagonists has had to endure, usually a close family member. I find that this brings…

Mental illness and writing characters

When I write my fiction, it’s easy to get inside the characters’ heads, coming from my perspective. I struggle with anxiety and depression, and this can translate quite handily when I build a character. Hey, write what you know. As a writer, I take…

I love David Lynch, but he’s wrong

Let me just say I’m a big fan of David Lynch. His unique creativity is a standout in pop culture, and I loved Twin Peaks, at least the first two seasons. Lynch wrote a book called Catching the Big Fish, which I reach recently,…
