J.W. Donley and I swam some deep waters in this new author interview with The Horror Tree. We talked about the writing process and creative muse; ecological horror and climate implications; and of course how it all relates to my new release I Have Asked To Be Where No Storms Come. It was an absolute privilege and pleasure to be part of this. Check out the interview on Youtube! I can’t believe… Read More

Are you tired of my book, yet? Well strap in, because y’all gotta make it to Friday and I have some cool stuff to share. I chatted with Mark over at Bloody Good Reads about book inspiration for I Have Asked To Be Where No Storms Come (out July 29!), story origins, and the evil man made me choose only three (three!) bloody good reads to recommend! Listen here to find out!

Some like their spreads with cheese, others like their spreads with cards, Myself, I like my spreads book-shaped, and the cover’s looking real nice! Paperback pre-orders open on Wednesday, July 27. If you’re thinking, “Like whoa dude-man, that’s like super close to the release date, I’ll just wait,” then stop, hesitate, and listen. Pre-orders show buyer interest and nothing makes our capitalistic society as hungry as that. So, sure, you could wait… Read More

Ruschelle Dillon over at the Horror Tree and I dish about All The Things from dark fantasy books to my new release to that one time I saw a ghost in a Paris train station. Check it out here! I Have Asked To Be Where No Storms Come releases July 29 from Crystal Lake Publishing.

What a pleasure it was to be interviewed by author Theresa Derwin as part of her Write On series with Crystal Lake Publishing.We chatted about poetry and inspiration and details about my upcoming release I Have Asked To Be Where No Storms Come. Check out the interview here. Here’s a small slice of the things we talked about: “I’m a panster writer, but also a “magpie” creator – my little creative cache… Read More

An early review of I Have Asked To Be Where No Storms Come has arrived from J.W. Donley from the Epeolatry Book Review and The Horror Tree: “Rarely do I come across horror fiction with such imaginative elements. Much like Clive Barker’s more fantastic works, I HAVE ASKED TO BE WHERE NO STORMS COME immerses readers in a fully realized world and it feels much larger than what can ever be put… Read More

My short story, “What Nightmare are You Living In?” was featured on Starship Sofa this past summer. It’s a wonderful little story about monsters with bottle cap eyes and a retired soldier whose life isn’t what he thought it was going to be. Listen to it here.

I’m familiar with Sunny Moraine’s fiction and have followed their publications on Apex, Nightmare, and Shimmer. Additionally, I’ve worked with them professionally, and their editorial work is great (highly recommend). Singing With All My Skin and Bone has been on my backlist to conquer since it first published from Undertow Publications and I couldn’t be more happy with the collection. It has everything I wanted: Moraine’s work all in one place where… Read More

The tagline for John Langan’s cosmic horror novel, The Fisherman was “A River Runs Through It straight to Hell.” C’mon, as a Montana kid, how could I not read a book like that? I’m also catching up on a bunch of recommended horror novels from 2018, and yes, this one was on the list. That’s why it’s called a TBR pile. You get to it when you can. Overall, I liked this… Read More

Sharp Objects was another novel, like Bird Box, that I planned to tackle before I saw the television series. Dark Places was my first Gillian Flynn novel, and I loved the visceral descriptions there and expected something similar in Sharp Objects.  From my understanding, Sharp Objects is Flynn’s first novel and it shows. When held against the polished pieces of Gone Girl and Dark Places, you can see how her writing and… Read More
