More About the Author
Like most authors, I've kicked around a lot. I've been an actor, a singer, an Emmy-nominated songwriter, a recording artist in Europe, a music publisher, a VP of Carolco Pictures and worked as a free-lance Music Supervisor on films such as 'Basic Instinct' and 'Universal Soldier.' I'm currently a counselor in private practice. My four MICK CALLAHAN mystery novels are available on Kindle, and a fifth is in the works for 2015. Check out my thriller THE PRESSURE OF DARKNESS, and the zombie novella PAIN. Also the novellas BITERS and ZERO AT THE BONE, both from Journalstone. I have published dozens of short stories and written a number of screenplays, including the Lionsgate horror movie and novel DEAD AND GONE. My dark thriller CLAN was released on Kindle. My comic thriller, a zombie opus entitled THE HUNGRY (co-written with Steven W. Booth) was a hit, and spawned five sequels, THE HUNGRY 2: THE WRATH OF GOD, THE HUNGRY 3: AT THE END OF THE WORLD, THE HUNGRY 4: RISE OF THE TRIAD, THE HUNGRY 5: ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE and THE HUNGRY SIX: THE RULE OF THREE. There's also a pulp novella written for an exciting Kindle/paperback series published by Amazon's own 47North to brag about. My entry was entitled THE DEAD MAN: KILL THEM ALL!
Don't miss my mystery/thriller ALL THE DEVILS, also co-written with Steven W. Booth. It features a new hero named Spider, and is projected to be the first in a series.
For the curious, I've twice been nominated for the Stoker Award by the Horror Writer's Association, once for my collection A HOST OF SHADOWS, and for short fiction. I've won the Tombstone and the Black Quill once each, and my short story FIFTY MINUTES, co-written with Joe Donnelly, was recently chosen for inclusion in the prestigious anthology Best American Mysteries of 2011. I'm on the list of Major Horror Authors of the Twenty-First Century in Readers' Advisory Guide to Horror, 2nd Edition, from the American Library Association. You can find me on Facebook or Twitter. I'd love to hear from you.
