Greetings and welcome to my website. Who am I? I'm a self-professed nerd and author of speculative fiction is best known for my gritty storytelling and edgy work. My moon-based, cyberpunk noir, LUNATIC CITY series typifies my dark, fast-paced writing style and flawed, relatable characters, while the WAR OF THE GODS SAGA delves into the deep lore of a fantastic, post-industrial civilization wrestling with the rise of an ancient evil and the moral pitfalls faced when combating it. My first series, THE PROCEENA TRILOGY, is a space opera with the grit and sci-fi military action of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and the tumultuous, revolutionary setting of LES MISERABLES.
In addition to my solo works, you can find my stories in Chris Kennedy's and Mark Wandrey's FOUR HORSEMEN UNIVERSE where my tales HERO OF STYX and THREE GLADIATORS appear in THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE MERC, and LUCK IS NOT A FACTOR: MORE TALES FROM THE LYON'S DEN respectively. My story THE WITCH is featured in THE HUNDRED WORLDS ANTHOLOGY, and DEBT OF HONOR can be found the CANNON PUBLISHING MILITARY SCI-FI/FANTASY ANTHOLOGY by John Holmes.
I live in the Tampa Bay area with his wife and two of his three kids (one has flown the coop.) I just retired as a fire company captain after twenty-five years of service and am diligently working on new material and looks forward to dedicating my full energy to writing.
