2015 was a great year for movies, especially if you’re a genre fan like me. I’ve never made any bones over where my cinematic preferences lie, eschewing normal dramatic filmic fare for stories told across more fantastical canvases. I recognize that limits my consumption of movies, and therefore limits my perspective, but it’s a cross I’m okay bearing. I’m not the Academy, so screw it.
* It should also be noted that I have not yet had a chance to watch either The Hateful Eight or The R
Given all the chatter that’s sprung up about Star Wars since THE FORCE AWAKENS was released, I thought I’d post a little piece regarding it and my history with the franchise.
Ahem ahem… What Star Wars Means To Me
If you’ve heard this story from me before, please bear with me. I repeat it here now so that it’s fully and officially on the record.
STAR WARS, what we would later come to alternatively call EPISODE IV and A NEW HOPE (depending on your level of geekery), was
As some of you may be aware, my latest book is a follow-up to STILL WATER, my first horror novel. FRAGILE tells the continuing journey of Maya, a paranormal investigator who also happens to have a touch of the supernatural about her. Maya is a character I adore (she might be my favorite creation), and I love getting to tell more of her story, something I plan on do more of in the years to come. Last week I finished my first editing pass, and now it’s in the hands of several beta readers who w
One of the nice things that ACX does when you produce an audiobook through their services is to give the author a number of free download codes they can give to whomever they like. I was proud of the audiobook for A MINOR MAGIC, and I’m even more proud of this one, both of which are narrated by the amazing Veronica Giguere. If you would like one of these free codes, send me a message and I’ll reply back with the code. The only thing I ask in return is that you post an honest review of th
Well, a year and a half after I last posted something to this site, I’m back! Why have I been away so long, you might ask? You see, it goes like this… I’m lazy, and when it comes to fixing internet issues I’m not very good at it, and around the same time as I posted the cover reveal for STILL WATER I somehow screwed up my site so that half the time you tried to get to it you’d instead get an error. I tried to fix it myself, but nothing I did helped. I then decided to redo my entire site using
Coal is the hard, black heart of the mountain town of Stillwater, West Virginia. But, far beneath it lies something much darker, an evil beyond time, waiting to rise and bathe the world in blood and fire once more. When unwitting miners dig into its tomb, only Kyle – Stillwater’s prodigal son – and paranormal investigator Maya stand between humanity and Hell. Time is short and evil runs deep in… STILL WATER.
April 22nd, 2014, is the official publishing date of my upcoming horror novel
Yep, you read that right. In 2014 I have two more books being published. First I want to talk about A BROKEN MAGIC. This is the sequel to A MINOR MAGIC, where we find that just because Skylar was able to defeat her enemies doesn’t mean her job is done. In ABM she will be heading north in the hopes of finding someone like her, another child of the House of Gairn, to help her heal the world from the damage done to it by Sau’faen’s foreign magic. On her journey she will find what she is looking
Hi, everyone! I know, I know, it’s been awhile, but I hate to spam just to fill in content. I want to make sure when I post that it’s something worth reading. This most certainly applies. I hope you’re as excited as I am.
DIRTY MAGICK: LOS ANGELES is an anthology from Lucky Mojo Press. The synopsis for it reads: “Dirty Magick: Los Angeles” is an urban fantasy anthology exploring the crossroads between magic and crime. Set in the city that invented noir, these stories comb the back str
I am a big fan of television. Perhaps too big a fan, some might say. I always have been, ever since I was a kid marveling at the adventures of Michael Knight and KITT on Knight Rider, and over the past several year TV has been responsible for some of the greatest storytelling I’ve ever seen (e.g., LOST, Battlestar Galactica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Breaking Bad). When Aaron Peterson asked me to be on the co-hosts on his The Hollywood Outsider podcast I jumped at the opportunity since it mea
