A company named Samhain Publishing was a major part of the beginning of my writing career. Editor Don D’Auria gave me my start there when he acquired THE SORROWS, my debut novel. From the time that paperback came out early in 2012 until the fall of 2015, most of my published works were born under the Samhain […]Read more "The End of the First Part"

Even though the title of this post is the name of someone else’s article, I felt a little weird typing it myself. So…yeah. Those are the writer’s–the awesome Mark Sieber’s–words, not mine. Which only makes me sort of a tool for making it the title of this post. But Mark is far from a tool. […]Read more "“The Ascent of Jonathan Janz”"

Hey, friends. I’m currently multi-tasking. My eight-year-old daughter is trying to insinuate herself into a bunk-together night with Mommy and Daddy, and I’m explaining why she needs to sleep in her own bed. I think I’m going to win this one, but it’ll be a near thing. Anywho, the very cool folks over at Horror After […]Read more "Horror After Dark Takes on WOLF LAND"
