So, after seven years I finally got around to writing the sequel to Walter. Walter is one of my most popular titles. It follows a thirteen-year-old boy who speaks to a person on the TV, that calls himself “The Man”.
The man tells Walter that something is bad is coming and that he needs to prepare.
No other book of mine has ever gotten the attention that this story has received. For years people have been asking, What happens to Walter and when is book two coming out.
Well, my friends, the wait is over. You can now Pre-Order book two.
You may want to turn on all the lightsand lock the doors.
You’ll get some relief, not all of these books are scary.
But the ones that are… Well…
Love is a many splendid thing. It can make you blind. It can make you feel like you’re floating on a cloud. It can make you go crazy. In this fast-paced romantic thriller, we see that love can be the end of all things. A kiss can contain eternal bliss or eternal madness. What would you do for Love? George would do anything.
The Old Couple
Pete checks on his elderly parents at least once a week. The countless visits all melt into one, but it doesn’t matter how many boring visits he has with his parents. He makes these visits with a sense of…
He turned the lights off after filling me full of water and preservatives. A quick process that only took one incision into my carotid artery. A part of me that was already easily accessible, so it was no trouble for my old pal Robert. In goes the chemical and out goes my already coagulating blood. I don’t know how long I’ve been dead, but I think I was in the freezer for at least a day. I don’t feel anything, but I can observe at all angles. I look down at my body and see that it has plumped up to over twice the size it was in life. My chest and abdomen look distended. I remember seeing the body of a drowning victim once, this reminds me of that. My skin is purple and fish-belly white…
It is the five year anniversary of my book, The Pool.
Quick post, my friend.
It’s the five year anniversary of this little ditty.
This one will always be one of my favorites. 1) because it was my first novel. 2) because of how easy it was to write. It was also a weird transitioning for me. I was writing about the town I grew up in but also being a fairly new dad, I was pulling away from the past and writing about all my new fears and hopes.
This one is always going to stick with me. Hope you like it. If you have already read, The Pool, I hope you enjoyed it.

Greetings my friend. It has been a while since I posted a blog, but I have an excuse. I’ve been writing new books and stories. My most recent being The Coffee House. The 13th book in my Night Portals Series. Here’s the description:
Brady just wants a coffee. Instead, he gets to experience someone else’s life.
Brady Townsend has to find a different place to get his morning cup of coffee. His normal coffee house has run out. The only place he knows of is in a bad part of town that he never goes to. The germaphobe encounters his worst nightmare, a homeless person.
Brady gets more than just a cup of coffee. He gets a lesson in life and empathy. Things are not always the way look. Sometimes…

2020 has been scary enough with everything going on. A global pandemic, murder hornets, near-misses by asteroids, natural disasters and doomscrolling the internet for bad news to see what catastrophe might happen next. You name it, 2020 has had plenty of events that qualify. Instead of focusing on how apocalyptic it all feels, how about […]
The eleventh book of The Night Portals Series is live.
Ruby is a social worker who stands at 6 foot 5 and speaks with the most pleasant soft voice you have ever heard. Everyone is mesmerized by her, except Victor, her old friend. He isn’t buying it.
I’m proud of this installment to the Night Portals series because it is the longest short story yet. It comes in at a whopping 9000 words and is perfectly timed for this spooky month. I hope you enjoy it, my friend.
