I am a writer, a podcaster and an editor. My first professionally published book, Mik Murdoch, Boy Superhero came out 2012. The second in the series (Mik Murdoch: The Power Within) and the third (Mik Murdoch: Crisis of Conscience) are now available for purchase in print and eBook.

I also have a YA/Superhero/Steampunk novel titled, Jack Kane and the Statue of Liberty (which I co-wrote with JR Murdock) available for sale in print and as an eBook.

Finally, my Wattpad story, Boyscouts of the Apocalypse is now in print and available as Scouts of the Apocalypse, Zombie Plague.

I am actively writing the sequels to both Jack Kane and Scouts of the Apocalypse.

I was one of the founding members of a writing site known as StartingWriteNow (along with Aaron Kite). Did I mention, I occasionally drop names?

I have three podcasts: GalaxyBillies, which is a Science Fiction/Comedy, Get Published, which is a writing podcast and Action Pack Podcast which featured my serialized novel, Boyscouts of the Apocalypse (now appearing on Wattpad). You can find the first two on iTunes and the third at www.actionpackpodcast.com.
