More About the Author
He began writing in his early teens and was greatly influenced by the works of Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Harlan Ellison, Charles Beaumont, and Theodore Sturgeon. A lifetime "Twilight Zone" fan, he wrote horror for several years before switching to paranormal and suspense, frequently combining them and including humor, as in his DEMON CHASER series. His two novels, WAGON DRIVER and AND DARKNESS FELL, focus on futuristic dystopian societies. APPRENTICE and STEPPING OUT OF MY GRAVE deal with death, and are both spiced with humor. His FUNNY DETECTIVE series also deals with death and humor. Many of his stories take place in Orlando, Florida, where he lived and worked for more than twenty years.
He grew up in Deer Creek, Pennsylvania, studied music at Duquesne University, and was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1969. He served as a bugler at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia, for two years, played professionally in nightclubs for several years, and worked at AT&T in Orlando, Florida, for 18 years. He lives on a 30-acre horse ranch in Southern Mississippi. AFTER DARKNESS FELL, the conclusion of AND DARKNESS FELL, is now available through Independent Publishing Group. The third entry of DEMON CHASER is available in paperback by Cambridge Books, and ebook format by Write Words. His fantasy-suspense novel, In Another Realm, is available through pre-order by Kindle Direct Publishing, to be published on October 1st.
He is presently at work on another suspense novel, as well as the fourth installment in the FUNNY DETECTIVE series.
