Al lives in the middle of the Nevada desert, and when not hunched before a computer screen, he can be found hunched over an art desk.

Author of the post-apocalyptic Travelers Series and the 1930s flavored dystopian series, Hep Cats of Boise, Al writes cozy and uplifting stories in normally gritty genres.

Toskaheart out now!

Episode One of Toskaheart is out now! You can download for free by subscribing to my NL: http://eepurl.com/gkNEIf

Cozy dystopian/post-apoc with a self-deprecating, underdog main character. Queer rep, bad jokes, and plenty of self-betterment.
