Hello, everyone! It's been a long time since I updated this website, and I have some exciting news: I just moved to Zanzibar! I've been here three days now, and the place is absolutely amazing. I'll be sure to post more pictures once the wifi situation gets sorted.
In the meantime... ZANZIBAR!!!

It’s a bird!
It’s a plane!
It’s a… horrible space mutant oozing with acid spit and comet juices!
I am proud to announce that my short story Cold Fingers has been included in a brand new anthology that’s all about superheroes fighting monsters.
Yes, you read that correctly. Superheroes. And monsters.
Chocolate and peanut butter.
Harold and Kumar.
Two great tastes and all that. You can check it out on Amazon right now. My story takes place in
so consider it a dry run for my upcoming paranormal romance novel that also
takes place in the 50th state.
But that’s still a secret. Pretend I didn’t say anything…
And check out the anthology. It’s wall-to-wall action from some very talented writers.

Shiny, red noses. Painted faces. Dead eyes. There’s something wrong with this clown, and no one will believe me! He wants our children! He wants them! And no one else can see him but me!
Please check out my new horror story in the brand new, comeback issue of Midnight Echo,
awesome horror magazine! I’ve heard some really exciting things about this
collection, and I cannot wait for you guys to read it!
My story (written under my pen name) is about scary clowns, if that’s your kind of thing. But this magazine has a little something for everyone, so pick up a copy today. You don’t have to be an Australian (although I wish you were Australian. Seriously. Those guys are the best.)

They have eight legs; red, segmented eyes; frothy mandibles; and enough poison to take down an elephant. They are spiders, the deadliest on earth, and they’ve taken over a new horror anthology.
This one isn’t on Amazon yet, so you’ll have to order your copy on Lulu.
If you don’t, they`re coming for you… crawling through the air conditioning vents, hiding in your carpet, quietly creeping up your leg…
God, I love spiders.

I’ve finally been accepted into a comedy magazine! It’s been a while since I was featured in Cracked.com, and I was starting to give up hope that anyone would think that my writing was funny. Well… here I am, getting all published and stuff by Defenestration Magazine, one of the coolest humor mags around.
My story is about a girl whose relationship completely unravels once she realizes that her boyfriend smells exactly like her deceased grandmother. It’s Shakespearean.
Anyway, I hope you like it. It made me laugh, so hopefully you have a similar sense of humor. If not, well, what can I say? There’s probably a rerun of Big Bang Theory on TV right now. Go and watch that instead.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the blog…
It’s been a slow summer (playing around in
and all that), but I finally have something worthwhile to share… my new
fantasy\horror anthology Elementals: Children of Water is fresh off the
Each story in this collection is a spooky glimpse at what’s lurking just under the waves at your feet. It’ll make you think twice about your upcoming beach vacation. Or at the very least… it’ll be a great beach read while you laze around in the sun. Either way.
You can get it on Amazon. It’s a little expensive right now, but hopefully the price will drop soon. I hope you enjoy. I’m proud of my addition to the collection. It’s one of the nastier stories I’ve ever written. And that’s saying something!

If anyone is interested in contacting me, feel free to check out my VK account. VK is the Russian rip-off of Facebook. It’s exactly like Facebook (color scheme and all), except Putin is somehow watching everybody at all times.
Oh, and judging by news feed, people are able to post inappropriate pics, which is totally unlike real Facebook. (On real Facebook, they have computer system thingies that can tell the difference between nipples and elbows.)
Anyway, I’m not plugging VK because of that. I’m saying it’s a perfectly good tool to keep in touch with people. Specifically Russian people. Or me. So yeah, check it out.
Plus, I need more friends. So… there’s that.

Last year, I wrote a romantic fantasy called Island on Fire. I was sick of reading about vampires and other pale guys who morph into wolves and stuff, so I decided to use a completely different fantasy world: Hawaiian mythology. Of course, a bunch of books have used Hawaiian creatures before, and tropical volcanoes will always be great settings for fiction, but I felt that Hawaiian mythology wasn’t nearly as overused as other legends.
My plan is to get this story released sometime next year. Nothing’s in place yet, but I really have high hopes for this one. It has an interesting conflict, and a really vivid setting.
But you can see for yourself. The first chapter is available on Harlequin’s website. Tell me what you think. Are you enjoying the characters as much as I enjoyed writing about them?

Hey everyone! Big news! My dad has a brand new western mystery coming out through an online publisher called Mysterical-E. It’s a cliffhanger serial released in three parts, and the first part can be found here. It’s a little bit funny, a little bit exciting, and there are plenty of shoot-outs, horse chases, and secret experiments. Plus, it takes place in early Hollywood, so expect a lot of real stars with dangerous secrets.

Some of you (heck, all of you) have noticed that I haven’t really posted a lot of pictures on this blog. Now, most bloggers out there try to jazz up their pages in the name of aesthetics or whatever.
However, I am not most bloggers. Sure, I have tons of pictures I want to show you, and most of them are pretty awesome and/or embarrassing. But I can’t upload them. See, China blocks websites like this one, so I have to use a V.P.N. every time I post something. And for some reason, my V.P.N. can’t handle pictures… or much of anything, really.
Until I figure this out (or I move to a different country), it looks like this blog won’t be very aesthetically pleasing. But hopefully, you like some of my words. If I write a thousand of ’em, that’s sort of like a picture, right?
