Writer living in Austin, Texas.

My work could best be described as satire, with a little fantasy thrown in. This is a good characterization of my comic fantasy series, CIRCLES IN HELL.

Here is a link to the series page.

I’ve started work on book six and hope to have it out in the fall, perhaps earlier. Follow me on Goodreads, if you don’t already. When I’m ready to release, I’ll post a blog entry letting everyone know.

I'm certainly making an attempt! I'm working on the first revision of book Five as we speak. It is a continuation of Steve's story, rather than the autobiography of Beelzebub that for now sits unfinished, though I may go back to Beezy's tale after the current book is done.

I'M NO ANGEL: THE RETURN OF STEVE MINION has been one of my more challenging writing projects, mainly because there was a certain finality to the story arc of the first four books. Yet what readers really wanted was a continuation of Steve's story. What would he do next? I'm trying to answer the question for you, but a good deal of work is required yet. If I can get I'M NO ANGEL to a point where I'm satisfied with it, look for the book to come out sometime in the next few months, and certainly no later than year's end.(less)
