It all started when Scott was ten and his mother wouldn’t let him see a movie he had no business seeing. Thinking he knew everything (because what child doesn’t know everything?), Scott decided to show his mother just how mature he was by writing his own take on the movie. It didn’t matter that Scott had no idea what he was doing—after all, he’d only seen the previews—nor did it matter that Scott only ended up validating his mother's stance by writing a story just as gory as she thought the movie would be. What mattered was the fact that Scott had discovered something: he loved to write. And now that he knew he loved it, he finally had something he could do with all those strange ideas that were constantly running through his head.

Of course, I broke her down and saw it in theaters, but it was a long process. Event Horizon was another movie which I'd seen alone, then she watched it finally and forbid me from viewing it ever again. Of course, that made me only want to watch that much more.

Granted, I was ten when these movies came out, so ... I guess I can see where she was coming from :)(less)

It is a post-apocalyptic fantasy/horror novel that follows a young woman by the name Vrana. She belongs to a tribe of people who hunt the Corrupted, which are none other than the remnants of humanity after an apocalyptic event known as the Trauma. Vrana finds herself involved with not only a sadistic Witch that haunts her dreams and threatens the safety of her village, but the fate of a Corrupted city in the north, where ten thousand humans have gone missing over night. I aim to have this released by Spring of 2015.

I am also working on the novel's follow-up, which is entitled "Three Heretics."

The universe in which "Bones" and "Heretics" takes place is shared between all my works. I will also be releasing an anthology of horror short stories and novellas entitled "Black Occult Macabre Volume 1." These short stories and novellas take place prior to "Bones" and the Trauma ; not only are they interconnected, but they are connected to "Bones" as well. The cool thing is, however, you don't need to read "Bones" or "Occult" to understand the other.

Lastly, my brother and I are collaborating on a Friday the 13th screenplay. It's more of a fun project than anything else, but you never know ;)
