I’m in the process of setting up book signings in the Kentuckiana area so check back often. 

I find darkness in all things good, no matter what I examine, and then write about it. Through my use of plot twists I take the reader down a mostly straight path until I skew what had earlier been described as normal. Keeping you on your toes and on the edge of your seat are of paramount importance to me; they are the byproducts of my horror. Sexual tension, social situations, and psychological horror are all intertwined with happiness, for a spell. I have yet to write fantasy or historical pieces, choosing instead to focus on psychosocial horror. I have written six novels, one of which was published and another is almost ready for editing. To make a longer story shorter, I love writing. Let me shock you today!
