I am the author of The Kendrick Chronicles crime series. The first two books, Bone Machines and Kali's Kiss, are out now as audiobooks from Blackstone Audio, Inc. The books are narrated by Robin Sachs (who has appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Babylon 5, Galaxy Quest, Lost World: Jurassic Park and more). The audiobooks are available in CD, MP3 disc and download formats from all major retailers, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible and downpour.com).

My historical/paranormal romance anthology, Warriors and Wenches, is available from Melange Books - written under my pseudonym, JT Macleod.

“I am a drinker with writing problems.”
Brendan Behan

“Ask what she would be if she wasn't a writer, this author replied: "Dead.”
― Ursula K. LeGuin

“Stories are masks of God.

That's a story, too, of course. I made it up, in collaborations with Joseph Campbell and Scheherazade, Jesus and the Buddha and the Brother's Grimm.

Stories show us how to bear the unbearable, approach the unapproachable, conceive the inconceiveable. Stories provide meaning, texture, layers and layers of truth.

Stories can also trivialize. Offered indelicately, taken too literally, stories become reductionist tools, rendering things neat and therefore false. Even as we must revere and cherish the masks we variously create, Campbell reminds us, we must not mistake the masks of God for God.

So it seemes to me that one of the most vital things we can teach our children is how to be storytellers. How to tell stories that are rigorously, insistently, beautifully true. And how to believe them.”
Melanie Tem, The Man on the Ceiling

“Some truly bad writing, but brilliantly funny at the same time.
"When he was yet a million miles away the bright ring of fire that marked its portal filled the sky in front of him, flexing and twisting like the devil's anus in spasms of immortal agony.”
Alan Glasser, The Demon Cosmos
