The Blood of Carterville

It’s release day! The Blood of Carterville is out today and I am so excited. I know, we are in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic and things are crazy out there, but I think of this as me doing my part. I’m not a medical professional or part of the many professionals directly needed right now, I am a writer. And I do believe entertainment is vitally important. We all need to escape. The …

A Long Hard Fall

If you haven’t heard about this series yet, Walter Anchor is a ghost detective. He’s from the same graveyard as JJ Lynch and the ghosts in Shuffled Off and the rest of the books in that series. In fact, he and his sidekick Emily have a cameo in the 2nd book in that series, Of Things Not Seen. I love these stories. Walter was a struggling actor, and then a dentist, and now he’s a …

Off Book

Okay, so I’m bit of a romantic (okay, okay, a big-ole romantic) and I love certain types of superhero stories. Most of the time, those that are on the fun side of the spectrum.

The idea for the big whopping epic story came to me early …

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 …
