Thanks for visiting my page. I write software by day and speculative fiction when I should be sleeping. Dark hot chocolate fuels my evenings. My work ranges from fairy tales to fantasy to horror and ghost stories. I've been writing all my life but decided to become super serious about it and pursue publication a few years ago.

My recent publications include my first novel The Black Blade: A Huckster Novel.

Get two FREE short stories, a fairy tale and a weird western. Details at www.jeffchapmanbooks.com.
