I was born in the fine year of 1971 in Park Ridge, IL. I am a life long Chicago resident and I love the city. I spent a few years in St. Louis, as well. I knew I wanted to write from the time I sat down at my mom's electric typewriter in the 3rd grade. Now I do write. I write freelance and articles for online news sources. I write horror, thrillers and detective novels. I also write non-fiction in true crime and history genres. I publish my fiction myself as an indie publisher and write and have found an audience for my work among ebook fans. I publish for Kindle, Nook and other tablets and devices at Smashwords.com. My non-fiction is usually published in print, but that may soon change as ebooks become more and more of the norm.

If a story sputters out on me, I almost always have another story that is stronger and ready to go inside my brain, so I can just switch. You can't be afraid to just abandon a story and move on to something else.(less)

I love being able to create entire worlds inside my head and make the characters do what I want. There is just a sheer joy in writing.(less)

Suspense-building horror

A story that (pardon the pun) lures you in with compelling characters - then leaves you with haunted dreams and jumping at shadows.

Creepy and disturbing.

Will make you wonder about that house there, on the corner. The one that never seems to sell or have anyone in it. There's also a kind of dark humor to it.
