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. Here is how to order from Amazon.

I also write fantasy, horror and science fiction, plus some poetry. 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.
