If you follow my social media at all, then you'll know I've been migrating old media that I've done over to my YouTube Channel. I had several interviews and short films that were recorded and used by another company I worked with for a while. Well, they recently removed their YouTube Channel, which means all of the content I had uploaded under them is gone.

What does that mean? I lost all of the views and comments we had over the last five years, but I still have all of the content. It's...

If you follow Stephen on social media, or subscribe to his monthly newsletter, you'll already know about his latest project MONSTERS.

MONSTERS began as a simple idea when Stephen suggested one day that he and author\poet Terry Miller work together on a project. Fast-forward a couple of years and here we are. 

Stephen originally met Terry at a convention and they began talking about the craft of writing. After becoming friends and discussing writing further, they eventually came to dev...

I get asked often what my favorite horror films are. Being a lifelong fan of horror films, books, comics, and games- I have quite a few. So many, in fact, it's truly hard to list them all. 

A lot of my answer will depend on my mood. Sometimes I'm in a zombie mood, sometimes it's slasher or werewolf... but one thing is for sure: I love horror films. 

Over the years, horror films have influenced me, especially my work as a writer. I've written several books of the horror genre, interviewed p...

There's a lot coming down the line for this website, but one of the main things is that I'm going to start adding more of the interviews I've done over the last several years.


First up is my latest interview with Pat Miller. You may know Pat as the character Joe from the cult classic, Maximum Overdrive. 

You can click the video below to watch it, or head on over to the MEDIA section of this website and check it out there. There's a few interviews and things already there, so go give them...

The website has been updated and approved by Stephen himself! We've added a few new things to it, so feel free to browse around and check out what's new. 

Or we can just tell you right now:

* A new GIVEAWAYS section has been added. 
* The MEDIA section has returned with a subpage called INTERVIEWS.

The GIVEAWAYS section is just that. A place where Stephen gives stuff away and holds contests. 

The MEDIA section is undergoing construction, as it's going to have the most changes in the near fut...

GLOOM is almost five years old. It’s crazy how time flies. I look back at how the hero came about, what inspired him, what he means to so many people- and then I think about the journey he and I have had together. 

I'm frequently asked about the character and what the books are about. My short answer is hope. Hope is a concept everyone understands. However, in the context of an ultra-violent world, GLOOM offers just that. He offers a chance to those oppressed by corruption...
