A book review that made my day!
"Amazing stories that would chill me to the bone one minute and then leave me surprised the next."
I submitted "If I Can't Sleep, You Can't Sleep" for their awards contest, and a free review was an unexpected bonus. I will be waiting with bated breath 'til September, when Readers' Favorite announces their contest winners.

Jan 1 2017
Several members of the Bethlehem Writers Group finished an experiment today. We each contributed a tale of a single event - a murder - from a character's unique point of view.
Some rollicking good stuff is contained in these nine stories! My episode is the 3rd in the series, from the point of view of a pimp/pusher from the streets of NYC - so much for "Write What You Know"!

A collection of strange stories to inflict on the ones you love, each one of these tales began their life told to an audience. In that spirit, these little nuggets of mirthful macabre are meant to be read out loud, preferably during a terrible storm, or when someone's been particularly naughty.

Just when you thought is was safe to be scared silly. Or is that scared and silly...?
My Friend Jackson - Novel
Stars In Their Eyes - Novella
Spirit Trail - Short Story
Beginning as my toe-in-the-water experiment with 2015's NaNoWriMo, a short story or possibly even novella has hatched. Based on characters and locales from my novel Pindlebryth of Lenland, it will illuminate some background leading up to the first novel's events, and flesh out some minor characters that I wish I had the time and space to devote properly before.
Another of my "Mythology meets the Twilight Zone" mash-ups, it weaves the tale of a teenager who is trapped in a cabin with a man who doesn't age -- and with something else...
With tongue firmly planted in cheek, this tale is a perfect match for the Bethlehem Writers Group, whose perennial tagline is "Sweet, Funny and Strange." Equal parts of all three, it's slated to appear in their next anthology Fur, Feathers & Scales.
Lie in It
A Glimpse of Pandora
...all of which will soon be searching for new homes.
And of course, Pindlebryth of Lenland - The Race For Change is simmering away in the cauldron...
