Found this great piece by artist J*RYU at Art Whino in National Habor. (www.artwhino.com) He has some other really cool stuff, but this really grabbed me. Look for a kid's short story based on this in time for Halloween. The story is writing itself. ... See MoreSee Less

Titles. Sometimes they come easy, sometimes they don't. Struggling to find the perfect title for my new dark, psychological novella. The screenplay version was called THE PLACE BETWEEN, but thinking it's not strong enough. Playing around with THE DEVIL'S ATONEMENT and ASYLUM LAKE. Working on it.... ... See MoreSee Less

Here's my first book, THE AMULET. 22 handwritten pages of awesomeness. My brother Eric designed the cover (as he does for my books today.) I was 12 years old and it won the Colorado Young Author's Forum. The main characters, Thil and Jena, travel to the Underworld to confront Hades and recover a magical amulet he has stolen. Hmmm...sounds very familiar.

Excerpt from THE AMULET: Streams of fire burst from his eye sockets and mouth, shaking him fiercely. An unholy scream came from Hades as fire sprouted through parts of his chest. Slowly he became wet, then the water became shiny, frozen. Soon, Hades was encased in a blurred ice coffin. Jenna could hear a distant rumbling which gradually became louder, then deafening. Suddenly the ice coffin exploded into millions of pieces, as did Hades, Ruler of the Underworld.
Spoiler alert: the Lord of the Demons may have met a very similar fate in JACK TEMPLAR AND THE LORD OF THE DEMONS.

A little work-in-progress. Here's a snippet from KILLER WITHIN 2 (untitled)

With a deep breath, Allison stepped into the bar.
Billy Ray’s Saloon was low-life enough to give dive bars a bad name. Poor lighting that cast long shadows. Musty air that smelled of stale beer, peanut shells and a faint whiff of urine. A dartboard. Pool table with so many stains on the felt that it looked like a work of splatter art. There were tables and booths spread throughout the place, few of them matching any of the others. While the mismatched look was popular in some trendy cafes, it didn’t take much to guess that Billy Ray, if there really was someone who still owned the place with that name, had simply pieced together a collection of furniture from whatever sources he could. An old jukebox hugged the wall near the pool table, pouting in the shadows with a thick power cord wrapped into a knot and thrown on top of it. Still, country music played in the background from speakers over the bar, probably plugged into someone’s phone. The ceiling height varied in elevation in the three sections, each eight feet or less, giving the space a compressed feel. Everywhere, that was, except at the bar.
The ceiling here soared to twelve feet which, after walking through the rest of the establishment, felt like a cathedral-sized space. In a way it was, and the supplicants here took their prayers seriously. Instead of rosaries and Hail Mary’s, they washed away their sins through other rituals.
Shot. Beer. Shot.
Peace be with you.
Salt. Tequila. Lime.
And also with you.
A low rectangular platform at one end of the room was ostensibly for a band to play, a time when the rickety chairs could be pulled back for a dance floor and the place could roar with good times. But it didn’t look like that had been Billy Ray’s scene for a lot of years, maybe ever. There were a few guys in their twenties at the pool table, missing easy shots, smoking, joking and wasting their paychecks, but they were the exception to the serious drinkers at Billy Ray’s.
This wasn’t a place to party. It was a place where fifty-year-old men talked about high school football games where they were heroes. Where lonely women, the kind dragging a luggage train of bad decisions behind them, used too much makeup and wore revealing clothes to show they still had the goods. A little worn, a little saggy, but goods nonetheless. It was the kind of place where those hunched over on their barstools imagined lives different from the ones they’d lived and did their damned best to drown out the voices in their heads that whispered mean truths about their value to the world. The kind of place that once the bell rung and the last drink was poured, the slow game of musical chairs would begin. Who went home alone and who got laid changed from night to night, but no matter how it turned out, they’d all be back the next night to roll the dice again.
