Family life, writing life, work life, I can't give up any. But creativity is intoxicating, and whenever possible, I'm off chasing the muse.

Background Information

I have been a writer of edgy paranormal fiction for most of my life, but always knew I had a romantic heart. My most recent fiction and poetry reflect that enduring quest for love and joy beneath the human struggle, most recently in my novel Beside the Darker Shore.

I'm largely a reader of literary fiction or speculative fiction that values atmosphere and character-driven story lines, with all-time favorite authors including Carlos Fuentes, William Faulkner, Luis Alberto Urrea, Ray Bradbury, J.R.R. Tolkien, Anne Rice, and John Steinbeck, and poets such as Mary Oliver, Sara Teasdale, T.S. Eliot, Jackie K. White, and so many more.

I've had stories and poems published in anthologies, such as Apparitions and Lights of Love, as well as numerous speculative and literary publications, including Rose and Thorn, Not One of Us, Hungur, Sounds of the Night, Wicked Hollow, Midnight Street, Karamu, Byline, and Clean Sheets. My fiction has received honorable mentions in “year’s best” anthologies, and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

A quote from one of my favorite authors, Luis Alberto Urrea, sums up how I want to approach life: "Sometimes the world is so dark and bloody that you have to be brave enough to broadcast innocent joy. Dare to be naive." Somewhere, at the heart of all of us, we share love and a quest for joy. 

Long-time married to the “boy-next-door,” I have two daughters and work at home as a copy editor, when I'm not off exploring the intoxicating realms of the imagination and chasing the muse.


Two honorable mentions in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, and a nomination for the Pushcart Prize in fiction.

Additional Information

My novel Beside the Darker Shore is now out and available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Eternal Press.
