EPIC Reading 8/15/18!

LA folks! This Wednesday I’ll be reading at Stories Books-Cafe on Sunset as part of Not A Cult’s EPIC Reading Series. Jeremy Radin, Nicolette Daskalakis, and Edwin Bodney will also be reading, which is very exciting. Probably even more exciting, though (for me, at least), is that this is the first event where you’ll be able to buy signed copies of my new collection, In Case Of Death!
