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...

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...

As an author, more specifically a horror author, I get asked quite frequently about what inspires me and where I get my ideas. I'm fairly certain that most of my brain has been infused with horror culture in a blender-like fashion where countless movies, books, TV shows, video games, and comics have been rattling around and combining like some macabre centrifuge, the contents spilling out and becoming my written works. To be completely honest, I'm not entirely sure where my ideas...

I wanted to let everyone know that VINE IN THE FIRE is actually complete. The manuscript has been written and edited and was sent to the editor last week for final revisions.

Editing is a word that strikes fear into writers. Why? Because, as writers and authors, editing means we have to change our work. Editing should not be a dirty word. Editing is, in fact, a way to shape your vision into perfect (or near perfect) form. When you have your first draft, and you've written the entire manuscript, the next step is to make sure it is revised and edited for as many errors as possible. When I say errors, I don't just mean grammatical. Sure, as a writer I st...

When you start your journey to writing your novel, you'll be plotting out character arcs. A character arc is the journey, or story, your character travels throughout your novel. From beginning to end, your characters all have arcs. Even if the character is only in the book briefly, they have an arc. Let's look at the definition of a character arc and how we can apply it to your novel. Character Arc Definition: A character arc is the transformation or inner journey of a character...
