I write character-driven dark fiction.
What do you do?

Want to know where to find me? 
Want to come by and say hi? 
Keep an eye on this page for news about events, sales and signings. 
I'd love to see you!

September 8 and 9, come join myself and Scott Goudsward at the Granite State Comicon, at the lovely Radisson Center in Manchester, New Hampshire! I'll have copies of Echoes of Darkness on hand, as well as a whole box of the brand-spanking-new A Sharp Stick in the Eye (and other funny stories)

Seriously, you should come find us. Before we come find you.

NOCON


November 14–16, I'll be hanging out with a whole bunch of writer folks at the La Quinta Inn in Manchester, New Hampshire. We're all going to kick back, relax, and talk about writing. Probably a lot. So if you're interested in talking about writing, for the love of God, come on by!

Sunday, September 30, I've tentatively scheduled a signing at Wicked Good Books, 215 Essex Street, Salem MA. I'll (tentatively) be out in front of the store selling books, signing the same, and possibly doing an occasional brief reading for the passing crowd. Come on by and talk books, editing (S&L Editing, look us up on the web!), hell, I'll even talk about the weather if you like.


Details to follow!

Writer in Residence at The Booklover's Gourmet

Come to The Booklover's Gourmet at 55 East MAin Street, Webster MA, on October 6, from 2 to 4 pm and join me for a discussion about writing horror. A little bit of talking, a little bit of reading, and a little bit of Q&A should make for a whole lot of fun. 

Rock & Shock 2018

I'll be attending with the New England Horror Writers, October 13, 14, and 15. There will be books. There will be fun. Details to follow.

Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival

Saturday, October 13th, 2018, from 10am to 4:30pm, at the Haverhill Public Library in Haverhill, MA, come see, meet, and mingle with more than SIXTY fantastic authors, artists, and filmmakers. There will be panel discussions, Halloween candy, and book debuts--including the first public sale of my new novella from Bloodshot Books, Friends in High Places!

Saturday (107) and Sunday (116), October 20 and 21, I'll be at Witch City Consignment at 301 Essex Street in Salem Massachusetts, where they'll have over thirty vendors specializing in the creepy and spooky! Come on by and you could go home with vampire fangs, horror t-shirts, halloween masks, and, oh, I don't know . . . maybe even books from a local horror author?
