Hi Sara! Thanks for asking.
Work on Thorn Man is currently underway. It's VERY early in the process, but 9 of a projected 13 stories have been mapped out and are in various stages of drafts. There is some interest from a publisher on this one, so that complicates things a bit as far as estimating a release date.
My goal is to have the book finished next year, with a release sometime in 2017.
Have a GREAT weekend, and I thank you for your interest in my work!(less)

I had been working on a story or two that wound up in the book, but most of them were written exclusively for "Deadsville."(less)

THE VOID



If you’re a fan of John Carpenter or Clive Barker, there’s a good probability you’re going to dig The Void, a fun little low-budget affair that serves as a throwback horror film very reminiscent of John Carpenter’s early work, especially in the film’s first half.


The story concerns a deputy sheriff who discovers a man stumbling out of the woods, bloodied and terrified. The nearest hospital is on...

I loved this book. The stories were creepy and well written to keep the reader enthralled. The only thing negative I can say about it is there are places where it should have been edited a little better, other than that great rea..." Read more of this review »

"Good

Excellent short stories. Enjoyed every single one. Can't wait to read more by these authors. Couldn't put it down. "
Dale Elster answered Goodreads's question: Dale Elster
Jack and Wendy Torrance from Stephen King's The Shining.
I admired her strength and resolve, and I sympathized with his struggles as both a man and a father.
Thanks for that great question!
