Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia had perks: Six (count 'em 6!) TV channels, specialty SciFi & Fantasy shows like Gene London and Dr. Shock, and plenty of paperback books. I've been addicted to reading fantastic stories since eighth grade.

That 1st draft is cooling off while I work my second pass on a light SciFi space adventure tentatively titled Planet Fred. A spunky botanist, giant talking slug, and killer plants - if that's not highbrow literature, I don't know what is. (less)

My Legends Walk series is complete!

Strange Medicine marks the completion of my urban fantasy/post-apocalyptic/dystopian/fantasy series. Finishing the series with two self-published books was an adventure. Thankfully I had access to awesome cover design by Kris Norris, good Beta readers, and editing by Caroline Miller. These factors helped ensure my final products were professional and up to industry standards. I even managed to pub
