Creatures Featured

Creatures Featured Starting in 2016, I’ve been releasing a short story collection every other year. I haven’t exactly been planing it, it’s just turned out that way. 2020 starts with a collection of my stories, and the theme this time is creatures. There’s a few stories from my other collections, some more from the anthologies I’ve contributed to, and a bunch of never-before-seen stories. I’m very proud of these stories and they run the gamut …

Hist first case, “Detecting Haley” was part of my first short story collection, Life After, and last year it was released stand-alone. (It’s also free to my newsletter subscribers, so sign up if you …

2019 was a hell of a year for me as a writer. Books released. Short stories sold. Lots of new stuff written, and lots of things learned. Seems like I should have something awesome and reflective to say about this, but about all I can come up with is, wow! I hit the 10-year mark on writing and maybe that did it, plus all the crazed persistence is paying off. Maybe I got lucky. Maybe …

With Light Years Between Us

Excuse me for a moment while I go all sci-fi on you. Only for a moment, I promise. If you hop on a space ship and travel fast, I mean really fast, as in approaching light speed, you will experience time very differently than someone on Earth. Specifically less time will pas for you than for the person on Earth. This gets into Eisenstein’s theory of special relativity if you want to go all google …

Chupacabra: A Conner Bright Mystery Story

I’ve got a new story is out. This one is, technically, a short novella at about 80 pages long. I wrote it as part of my Campfire Tales program. It’s where you guys fill out surveys to help me write my next story and then get to read them, as long as you are a subscriber to my newsletter. (Yup, I’m trying to bribe you, but it’s a good bribe 😊) If you are a …
