I write murder mysteries. My debut novel, “The Bloody Black Flag,” is a historical mystery set aboard a pirate ship in 1722. It published Sept. 12 from Seventh Street Books. That series also includes “The Devil’s Wind,” “A Bottle of Rum” and the upcoming “Pieces of Eight,” due for release in March 2021. You can find out how to buy those here.
I am also embarking on a new modern-day, hard-boiled series featuring a detective in rural Ohio. “City Problems,” from Oceanview Publishing, will be released in July 2021. It is available for pre-order now. Details are here.
I also wrote fantasy, horror and science fiction, plus some poetry, back in the day. One of my short stories was an honorable mention in “The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror 2008,” edited by Ellen Datlow, Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant.
I am represented by The Evan Marshall Agency.
Other things you might see me write about here include: beer, Godzilla, politics, James Bond, comic books, movies, music, zen, science, pop culture and just plain weird stuff. Most of the time, I’ll try to relate these topics to the writer’s craft — but every once in while I’m just going to go off on a rant of some kind.
