I write dark fantasy, paranormal suspense, and urban fantasy novels.

My first series, THEM, is a jaunt through a post-apocalyptic central Texas where the dead walk, and vampires, werewolves and other unsavory creatures roam the night. It has elements of the zompoc genre, dark fantasy, and military survival fiction. My goal with this series was to give readers the same excitement I get from reading books by Larry Correia, Jonathan Maberry, and J.L. Bourne.

On the other hand, my Colin McCool series falls squarely between urban fantasy and paranormal suspense. Colin's world is full of magic, mystery, and folklore come to life. I wrote this series because I love reading books by authors like Patricia Briggs, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher, and Neil G

Because Patricia writes romance that's just on this side of readable for a dude like me. And the rest of her stories are fantastic. So, I guess it's because I don't have to skip those parts when I read her work. I know, lame, but it's the truth.(less)

Hi Lisa!

Admittedly, the novellas are a bit out of order. There are two prequel novellas and two short story collections in the novella series, and all serve to expand on and support the main narrative in the Colin McCool urban fantasy/paranormal suspense novel series ("Junkyard Druid," "Graveyard Druid," "Moonlight Druid," etc).

Regarding the prequel novellas, "Blood Scent" occurs before Book One in the main novel series. However, "Druid Blood" happened way before "Blood Scent" (it's a sort of origin story for Colin) and it's currently listed as Volume Three in the novella series. Confusing, I know, but I listed them for sale on Amazon out of order, and I haven't yet gotten around to changing the covers to put them in chronological order.

To help you sort out the confusing book order, here’s a chronological reading order for books I’ve released in the Colin McCool universe to date:

• Druid Blood

• Blood Scent

• Junkyard Druid

• Graveyard Druid

• Moonlight Druid

• Underground Druid

• Blood Circus

• Druid Justice

• Blood Ties

• Druid Enforcer


***SPOILER ALERT***

You may also wish to read my THEM zombie apocalypse series, as Colin makes appearances in Books Three and Five. But be advised, you don’t need to read those novels to know what’s going on in Colin’s narrative.

I hope this clears things up for you!

How It Ends a post-apocalyptic movie from NetflixThe ironically-titled How It Ends is a post-apocalyptic thriller starring Theo James, Forrest Whitaker, Grace Dove, and Kat Graham. Like many of the other Netflix original films the streaming service has released this year, it features an above-average production value and a perfectly competent cast. Sadly, it ultimately fails to deliver as a theater-worthy movie due to weak character dialogue,...

Junkyard Druid by M.D. Massey
"With a dash of Odd Thomas and a pinch of Dresden Files, Junkyard Druid is just my type of urban fantasy series. Throw in a splash of Constantine, and we're cookin' with gas! And don't get me started on the hero, Colin McCool. He's my kind of Druid..." Read more of this review »

I nearly read this book straight through from cover to cover. It has some stylistic issues such as frequent tense changes, and it could use a good edit, but it's a fun, fun read... especially if you're a fan of the genre. Pick it up, you won
