Wannabe Heminway Beard
(still working on the intense stare)

I make stuff by making stuff up. I write young-adult and adult novels, edit themed anthologies, teach, and run a software company–all while juggling flaming chainsaws.

Did I mention I make stuff up for a living?

I’ve been a radio DJ, movie extra, screenwriter, software developer, and instructional designer. I studied English, Education, and Instructional Systems Technology at Ball State and Indiana University.  I’m interested in just about everything but idle time.

I’m the author of the apocalyptic horror thriller, Breaking the World, as well as the Bram Stoker Award-nominated co-editor of the Dark Faith, Invocations, and Streets of Shadows anthologies. My essays and short fiction have appeared in numerous venues including Apex Magazine and Shroud.

Well rested (pre-kid)
afternoon in Paris

When I’m not killing forests just to see my name on the side of a worn paperback, I’m geeking out to a steady diet of books, movies, and games. This website is a cluttered storage shed for my published work, pet projects, and random interests.

If you’ve made it this far, you might just enjoy this site. And my writing. Especially my writing.
