Interview Posted

I am a little late. Had the pleasure of being interviewed about taking on the POV of characters set in Asia.

Here is my take:

Happy New Year – First Review

. . . And it is 5, count them, F-I-V-E stars! I am thrilled to star 2018 this way. Thank you, Mr. Queen.

Read a snippet of the review here and go to the page to read his breakdown of each story in my new collection:

Review in

Got my first review for my short story Ugly as Sin, available in Crossroads in the Dark III by Burning Willow Press.

Thanks, Ryan. That was what I was going for. A novella? I just might.

His own story Consumption is a very original and engaging read. I am proud of the novella we are working on together. In the meantime, please pick up his debut novel coming at the end of January.

Out NOW

Hey duders,

My short story “The Scissors’ Serenade” is amongst other talented artists in this anthology:

Buy it. It is for a good cause with proceeds going to victims of domestic violence.

So what is my tale about? In a nutshell:

A short time in the future the economic bubble has burst. The newfound pressures have added extra strain to the Japanese working class and some of them have gone off the deep end.

A series of violent attacks by an unknown man armed with scissors has given detective Noriko a fresh challenge in her sleepy town. Can she overcome gender inequality in the workplace and prove herself worthy by catching the culprit?

Grab yours as ebook or paperback today. Happy Holidays!

Serenaded into an Acceptance

Hey folks,

Just received news my short story “The Scissors’ Serenade” has been accepted into this anthology:

It is for a good cause.

If I’m not mistaken, proceeds go towards victims of domestic violence.

Acceptances Out the Wazoo

I have been behind on updates and I do apologize, but a lot has happened since I last blogged.

First of all: I am a proud dad of a beautiful girl.

(See proof)

In addition, Heartfelt Flows and Misery has been edited. Now it is being formatted and then the freebies will go out and the collection will go live on Amazon.

But wait! There's more.

"Rituals of a Wild Species" got an early acceptance for Southern Fried Autopsies. That cover may be the best one so far. Lynn Lesher is a phenomenal cover designer.

"Ugly as Sin" will soon be out in CRITD III. And "Butterflies in the Killing Fields" received an acceptance letter for part IV, tentatively titled Ghosts. I conducted a lot of research into a dark time in Cambodia's history for the latter.

More novels, short stories, novellas, and even a collaboration are in the works.

Stay tuned! Thanks for sticking with me.
