This is my first book that's been published. I've had book sales in the US, Europe, and Asia.

I find it so amazing that someone in India is reading my book. Someone so far away - that I will probably never meet - is taking time to read about characters I created. There are people in Europe that do... Read more of this blog post »

In 1929, the Belgian artist Rene Magritte created The Treachery of Images. The painting showed a pipe, and under it the paradoxical inscription "This is not a pipe". When it was pointed out to him that what he had created was in fact a pipe, Magritte replied "OK, you should try filling it with to... Read more of this blog post »

Best Little Witch-House in Arkham

When I was growing up and my family visited my grandmother, who lived in the city, she would give me money for buying books at a bookstore a few blocks down from her building. I bought a lot of wonderful old books, including horror anthologies with classic stories by H.P. Lovecraft, August Derle... Read more of this blog post »

When I was in high school, my older/only sister told me that I wrote like a third grader.

That kind of stuck with me. (Not only because it was mean, but because I'm one of those people who can remember just about everything.) Since then, I was really hard on myself about my writing skills, and I w... Read more of this blog post »

It’s tough plugging books, seriously, I think it’s harder plugging them than it is writing them. There’s twitter, there’s blogger, there’s Goodreads and there’s even new platforms like Medium (plus a load I’ve probably not even heard of yet.)

It’s a constant battle of keeping the pot boiling, aski... Read more of this blog post »

Like Die Hard, this isn't a story about Christmas, more a film set at Christmas. I love the sleigh bells, the tree, the cat, the dog, the buddy buddy, the fight in the rain, Mel's acting (even though he's a dick, back then he was sex. Just that. Sex.)

When I started writing Falling for a Santini, I had it set in my mind that Anthony’s book would be the book after it. But, there was a little voice in my ear. And that voice grew. Then I realized it was Brando and determined his book would be next.


So, here is a little tidbit from Brando’s book, w...

On January 1, I predicted that 2014 would be a pretty bad year - it was just in the air. There was almost a movie sense of foreboding when I walked out into that terrible underpopulated overcast Brooklyn gloom. There were a lot of real warning signs too, in America and around the world.
