Yes, I have a lot of books, and if this is your first visit to my amazon author page, it can be a little overwhelming. If you are new to my work, let me recommend a few titles as good places to start. I love my Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series, humorous horror/mysteries, which begin with DEATH WARMED OVER.

Brian and I are just starting work on NAVIGATORS OF DUNE, so that will be our big project for the next year, after which we haven't made definite plans. I don't know if we have any further HELLHOLE books coming, but we would like to do other work besides Dune (while also continuing to write Dune books...so much more to write.)(less)

“A moment of consideration often prevents a thousand apologies”

“We each have our lives... What matters is not how long those lives last, but what we do with them.”
Kevin J. Anderson, Hidden Empire

“Scully,' [Mulder] said, his voice quiet and serious, 'with the... unorthodox explanations I often find when studying the evidence, I know you're always skeptical-but every time you're at least fair to me. You respect my opinion, even when you don't agree with it.' He looked at his hands. 'I don't know if I've ever told you, but I really appreciate that.'
She looked at him and smiled. 'You've told me, Mulder. Maybe not in words... but you've told me.”
Kevin J. Anderson, Ruins
