His horror novels have drawn comparisons to the works of Stephen King, and his thrillers to those of Elmore Leonard. In the real world he's an anesthesiologist, but, if asked, he'd tell you he'd much rather be writing. ...more

Language Police - a brief rant

Here's a topic for discussion, a pet peeve of mine. Why would a reader habitually offended by off-color language first purchase and then read (or begin to read) a novel with a handgun on the cover and the words RATED R FOR LANGUAGE BY THE PUBLISHER in the description, then become in some cases deliriously offended by what they find there and take the time to write a scathing review accompanied by Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Sean Costello  (?)

“Smoke and Cigar Aficionado. It was a personal touch, a nod to bygone days, and Keith felt right at home here. A creature of habit, he’d been coming into Rudy’s every weekday”
Sean Costello, Finders Keepers

“Jenny picked up her cat and leaned”
Sean Costello, Sandman

“Cocooned in his pillowy red snowsuit, Steve came whisking down the hallway, his overstuffed school bag flopping between his shoulder blades. Though he wasn’t a big fan of school, the little guy was excited about it today. His junior kindergarten teacher always made a fuss about the kids’ birthdays, and Steve had been chattering about it all morning.”
Sean Costello, Squall
