SICK HOUSE Available Now!

The Kindle edition of my newest (and scariest) novel is now available! Get it right HERE.


It’s a home invasion from beyond the grave in this novel of unrelenting terror from the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of PRESSURE, DWELLER, and WOLF HUNT.

It doesn’t seem like the perfect house, but screw it, it’s good enough to rent for a year. Unfortunately for Boyd, Adeline, and their two young daughters, it’s immediately clear that they chose the wrong place.

The nightmare begins with violent coughs and headaches. Food starts to rot almost as soon as they take it inside. A pet tarantula goes missing. Some family members begin to exhibit creepy behavior.

Then the ghosts arrive, and all Hell breaks loose…



January 16

I’m going to be doing gobs of updates to this site. It’ll look the same, because I don’t have the technical skills to give it a facelift, but over the next few weeks/months/years I’m going to try to get everything as up to date as possible. (Some of the pages are flat-out embarrassing.)

A quick glance at today’s work will show placeholder pages for Sick House and How You Ruined My Life. I did a minor update to my epic bio, and a pretty significant update to the “Short Works” page, which hadn’t reached the “flat-out embarrassing” level yet but was getting close.

The biggest change you’ll see is that I’m replacing the book descriptions (which are just the official descriptions that you’d see on the back cover) with more conversational, behind-the-scenes stuff. That’ll be a very gradual update. You don’t have to keep clicking the individual pages–I’ll post when the changes are made.

Just over 12,000 words into Bring Her Back



All right, here we are two weeks into 2018! I’m told nobody reads blog posts anymore, so I guess I shouldn’t worry about typos or anything like that.

My first novel of the year, Sick House, should be out really, really soon. The digital edition is definitely a January 2018 release, and probably closer to the 15th than the 31st. (But I’m only officially committing to “January 2018.”) Though there’s a strong dose of dark comedy, this is as close as I’ve ever come to writing a pure horror novel.

My young adult novel How You Ruined My Life will be out at the beginning of April. It’s another goofy comedy in the spirit of my other four young adult novels.

I don’t actually know for sure that my novella Cold Dead Hands will be out in 2018, but I think it will.

Right now I’m just under a sixth of the way done with my novel Bring Her BackThis is a dark, intense horror/thriller kind of in the mold of Pressure. Beware…


Happy 2018!

It’s 2018! Holy crap, we made it!

For those keeping track, 2017 brought a new YA novel (Stranger Things Have Happened), a short story collection (Everything Has Teeth), a novella (An Apocalypse of Our Own) and a few individual short stories.

That’s not enough, dammit!

For 2018, I’ve announced a new adult horror novel (Sick House, January) and another YA comedy (How You Ruined My Life, April). But there’ll be more. Lots more. Stay tuned!
