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

Sleepwalker gets my vote for my best novel

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015


It’s long, suspenseful, and in my opinion, my best novel. If you like the twists and turns of some of Dean Koontz’s older works (think Dark Rivers of the Heart), then you will LOVE Sleepwalker!

There are always irons in the fire, and I hope to be able to announce some good news very soon!

FIRES RISING now available as an audiobook

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

My novel FIRES RISING has just been released in audiobook. This will mark my fourth audiobook, the others being DEAD SOULS, DARK RIDE, and SLEEPWALKER. Please give it a listen!

So…I know. I’ve been quiet. I have been busy, however, with a career that has treated me well, and a fun-as-all-hell party rock band that has sucked a lot of the creative energy I used to put toward writing. Am I still writing? Well, yes, but not as much as I used to. It all boils down to dollars and cents. I can write a short story in a week, and get about $100 for it. And I’ve got a handful of new ones that wait patiently for an editor to ask for them. I simply don’t look to be published any longer.

Well…that’s not entirely true either. I look to make a living. Whether it be my regular paycheck, or a gig with the band where I make that same $100 (and many times, a lot more) for a few hours of adrenalized fun-as-all-hell guitar playing. And then there’s my writing, or to be more specific, what I have written.

I’ve got 10 books out there. Seven novels and three short story collections. They are all in e-book, some in audiobook, and many of them are seeing print now for the first time in other countries, such as Germany, Poland, and Italy. DEAD SOULS came out as a feature film in 2012 and DEEP IN THE DARKNESS pick against spread is on the way. And guess what? I am making more money now writing every now and then than I did a few years back when I was sweating blood onto paper.

I have a half-novel called MISSED CONNECTION that is funny as hell and just itching to be finished. Maybe I’ll get to it. Maybe someone will pay me to finish it. That’s what it all boils down to. I’d never thought I be saying this, but my love for the almighty paycheck has overtaken my love for the craft.

I have no lack of ideas. I’ve written them down in a notebook and have six novels in my head that want out of jail. Unfortunately no one wants to bail them out. So until then, I’ll continue to earn local rock-star status and wait for cha-ching my ears are tuned to hear…

So…how did I do it?

“I used Grammarly to grammar check this post, because I have a tendency to over-edit my work, and Grammarly takes a step out of the equation. Thank you!

If you are here reading about my latest adventures, you are sure to know that in the past couple of years I’ve been involved in getting two of my novels filmed as NBC/Chiller original films. The number one question I am being asked right now is, “How did you do it?” Well, in a nutshell, I pretty much tell everyone, “I got lucky”. And there’s a lot of truth to that. But to be honest, I also like to think that I told the right story, and hooked up with the right producer, at the right time. Yes, there was a bit of luck, but there were many other factors at play that lent to this success.

It all started with an email from Synthetic Cinema’s Executive Producer, Andrew Gernhard. It was a basic ‘hello’ letter asking me if my novel Deep in the Darkness was available for option. At the time, Deep in the Darkness had been optioned three times, and was in the middle of a 1-year agreement with independent filmmaker Jeven Dovey. Some of you may know that Mr. Dovey had filmed my short story 1-800-Suicide, and was looking to film a feature. He’d read and loved Deep in the Darkness, and gave it a stab.

Since I could not give Mr. Gernhard the rights to that, I’d asked him if he’d be interested in The Demonologist, or Dead Souls. I’d also asked him how he came about my work, and he told me that someone in his crew recommended me (thank you Jason!). Andrew optioned three of my books, and pitched them to Chiller, who at the time was just getting into original films. Then, I waited. And waited. Almost a year passed when I heard back. Chiller decided to go with Steve Niles’ Remains. I had been the runner up with Dead Souls. It was a great honor to have been in the running, but I was equally disappointed.

But…Chiller still liked the story in Dead Souls and the option was renewed. A year later, I discovered (months after Chiller gave Dead Souls the green light), that it would become a Chiller original film. As a matter of fact, mere weeks after being told the good news, I was on set filming my cameo. In the meantime, the option lapsed on Deep in the Darkness, and I went to Synthetic Cinema to see if there was still interest. Apparently there was, because while on the Dead Souls set, I was told that DITD was in the running. That was a GREAT week!

Fast forward to the night of the Dead Souls premiere—I had about 30 close friends and family at my home, all geared up to watch the movie. A text came in from Andrew Gernhard telling me that DITD had been green lit. Another spectacular night!

So now, it’s a few months after the filming of DITD, and I await all the post-production goodies, like the film’s poster, the trailer, etc. It will be a fun ride leading up to DITD’s premiere, this time in theaters. Many of you have asked…will there be more? The answer to that is MAYBE. There are some irons in the fire, but nothing set in stone yet. You’ll be the first to know if it happens.

In the meantime, pick up a copy of DEAD SOULS on DVD, or read DEEP IN THE DARKNESS while you wait for the film’s release.

Thank you for your support!
