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.

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...

Since GLOOM: SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS has just been released, I thought I'd share information on what my next book will be. I started working on this book last year and felt it just wasn't 'clicking' yet. I loved the characters and story but felt like there was some things missing. I put it off so I could wrap up the latest GLOOM book. Now that it's out, I feel comfortable about discussing what my next book will be.

VINE IN THE FIRE will be my return to the horror genre. A western setting with...
