I got the chance to be interviewed on a brand-new horror podcast called Unveiling Nightmares! The host, Crystal Baynam, is fantastic and a huge fan of all things dark and strange. It was a lot of fun, here’s a link!

Did you know I wrote a children’s book? Not only that, it’s being published through Cemetery Gates Media, a publisher I so excited to work with. For ages 5 to 9, this follows a girl named Hazel who is dared to cross a cemetery on Halloween night. She’s guided along the way by four strange stories, and some unexpected friends. There’s a lot of personal things here, I grew up by Desert Creek, and the The Zookeeper location is based on an area where my friends and I played in the early 90s. Pet Spider was written years ago for my kids, and I made a book of it for them. There’s on crumbling copy remaining at my house of that one. Honestly, a walk around the cemetery was something I often did with family as a kid. Seemed perfectly normal to me, but my wife, who is amazing and helped with tons of advice on this book, informed it was in fact not that normal. Anyway, the closest comparison I can give this is Alvin Schwartz’s In A Dark, Dark Room. I hope you enjoy it! Paperback and eBook available here.

That’s a lot of awesome! You can preorder right here. Plus, that cover. Damn. Brandon Applegate edits a mean anthology, and you should read his short story collection too.
I’ve been dying to check out this anthology and it’s finally here! This contains my story The Knock-Knock House, but it also contains fiction and nonfiction from an incredible selection of authors. It’s also edited by Joe Sullivan and Joe Provine, who have been assembling this for the past year-and-a-half. Provine has written a ton of Oklahoma ghost story books, which I have obsessively read since relocating there. Seriously, if you love ghost stories, spooky folklore, and urban legends, this is a must-read.
My 100-word horror story The Wraith was featured in Hungary Shadow Press’ Deadly Drabbles Tuesday! The story is about the price of coming back from the dead. So proud to be included. Keep an eye on Hungry Shadw Press, they’re also putting out incredible work!
