I’m the author of The Scary Tales, a series of dark fantasy novels featuring mash-ups of your favorite fairy tale characters and classic horror monsters. My fiction has appeared in several markets, including A cappella Zoo, Pseudopod, Clackamas Literary Review, and Best New Werewolf Tales. My stories have won Best in Show in the Sinclair Community College Creative Writing Contest and the Dayton Daily News/Antioch Writers’ Workshop Short Story Contest.
I grew up in Enon, Ohio, a little town with a big Indian mound. I later earned a B.A. and M.A. in English from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. I live with my daughter in Dayton, where I work for my alma mater. Each morning and most nights, I enjoy making blank pages darker. You can get to know me better by visiting my website at:

THAT RISEN SNOW (Book 1 of The Scary Tales) is now available in ebook and paperback formats:
This zombie sequel to Snow White begins where the classic fairy tale ends, with the Prince’s kiss waking Snow from her cursed slumber. Snow wakes up, but she doesn’t wake up right. Now a deranged zombie, she infects both the Prince and the seven dwarfs’ leader. That leaves the young dwarf Grouchy, who is secretly in love with Snow, to find a cure for her malicious curse. So begins THE SCARY TALES, a series of dark fantasy novels featuring mash-ups of classic fairy tale characters and horror monsters.
Think Lord of the Rings meets Walking Dead, with a twist of Grimm's Fairy Tales.
Books 2 and 3 of The Scary Tales are now available as ebooks. Visit my website for details!
