I have been a storyteller since I can remember, and my novel, Dark Justice, is my first book-length work.
Recently co-wrote a vampire novella called Ripper's Row, with author Shawn Weaver. I recently published a novelette called "The Hotel California."

I live in rural northern Illinois with my lovely and gracious wife Barbara and an overweight male cat named Hedgie. I have two grown sons who also live in the area.

I'm a big King fan, and I loved this book. Even with all the intricate detail that this author goes into, I felt it was relevant and added a lot of depth to the story.
The story line is rather far-fetched, but if the reader will buy into it, (and the
