I was born on Halloween night on Gallows Road.
I have been a little warped ever since.
If you like the creepy, spooky, haunted, twisted, grotesque, and just plain weird, you and I are going to get along fine. I consider myself a horror writer; almost everything I write, no matter what my intent might have been, usually takes an on-two-wheels, screaming turn into terrible, horrible, no good, very bad things. As Molly Millions might say, "It's just the way I'm wired." My stories range from dark fantasy to science-fiction to Southern Gothic, but with few exceptions, blood and gore and nasty ole dead things abound.
I am currently working on a dark fantasy novel. While I have gone the traditional route before (my short fiction has appeared in several print and online magazines, and I'm a former member of the HWA), I've grown disillusioned with traditional publishing and I'm treading the indie path.
I'm a compulsive reader. My tastes are eclectic. I prefer horror, fantasy, and sci-fi, but I also read mysteries, historical romance, and even the occasional fanfic. If you follow me and you have Wattpad fiction, I will check it out. If it grabs me, I will read it. (Even if it doesn't grab me at first, I will probably read it anyway. I'm serious; it's compulsive.) Don't worry if it's still raw and wriggling--we all have to start somewhere. I had a lot of help on my own writing journey, and I believe in paying it forward as much as I can.
My favorite authors include Stephen King, William Peter Blatty, William Gibson, Alfred Bester, C.S. Lewis, Lovecraft, Tolkien, Bradbury, and Poe.
I collect bones, crustaceans, and roosters.
I love turkey vultures.
One of my dogs likes to bring home dead things. My yard looks terrible. I'm pretty sure none of the parts are human, though.
