October 4th, 2021

From Thunderstorm Books comes this gorgeous deluxe limited edition hardcover of my novel Dead Souls. This special version contains cover art by Anna Laimo, my daughter. She’s in her third year as an art major at Cornell, and is a huge horror fan. This is her first foray in the horror publishing world, and it will not be her last!

Also included in this special version of Dead Souls are introductions from actors Bill Moseley (who played Ray Depford in the Dead Souls movie) and Jesse James (who played the lead role of Johnny in the film). I am SO EXCITED about this edition of what many have said is my best novel. Check it out!

2020 UPDATE

October 14th, 2020

So…yes, I took a bit of time off, actually a lot of time off from writing, but I promised myself that 2020 would be a productive year. Despite all the distractions 2020 has brought, both personally and professionally, I stuck with my goal to get in at least an hour every night and a few hours on the weekend to get back into the groove. It was difficult at first, but I’ve learned a great deal and am in the process of writing the best damn novel I’ve got in me. And…it’s NOT a horror novel. After watching the Netflix series You, and subsequently reading the novel, I set out to write an erotic thriller from the perspective of a likeable anti-hero. I promised myself I’d share the news when I hit the halfway point. So here I am!

As well, in the interim, I’ve sold the first couple of short stories I’ve written in a long time. Soon to be announced!

2020 may be sucking on many levels, but it has rejuvenated my inner scribe. I’m thrilled with my most recent work and am looking forward to delivering new fiction for many years to come!

Sleepwalker available in trade paperback

December 17th, 2019

Sleepwalker is the closest thing I’ve ever gotten to a non-horror novel. Don’t get me wrong, it’s rife with elements of horror, but it’s an all-out thriller with elements of horror and sci-fi. Fans of Dean Koontz’s earlier works will love it!

SLEEPWALKER AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK

March 30th, 2017

Buy it now for $12.99 on AMAZON.COM!

For the first time ever…my novel SLEEPWALKER is available in paperback. Originally published in Limited Edition hardcover from Delirium Books, SLEEPWALKER found its way into e-book and audiobook formats from Crossroad Press. Now, Crossroad Press has released it in paperback!

This will be the year of the Sleepwalker–in addition to this release, it will be out this year in Germany from Voodoo Press and Italy from Nero Press Edizioni.

I consider this to be my very best novel, a cross-genre thriller with elements of horror and Sci-Fi. If you like the works of Dean Koontz, or shows like The X-Files or Quantum Leap, then you will LOVE SLEEPWALKER. And, at 120,000 words, it’s also my longest book.

Next up…a feature film? 😉

You can get your copy for $12.99
