Justin always wanted to be a writer, but forgot that fact for most of his life. He wrote a ton of stories when he was young, like grade school young, and was even sent to a young authors conference at the age of 8. But as he grew older, he seemed to forget he one day wanted to be a writer and instead went into the graphics industry. In his defense, he did love to draw as well.

He graduated from the Digital Media Arts program at Seneca College in 2004 and went straight to a job in media graphics. He did that for a few years and then moved to a different department in 2009, which required no graphical work. That’s when he started writing again. It took a while to get back into it, but he’s been writing non-stop ever since. He released his firs

Though the project I've been working on mostly is a Western Horror. I know this isn't a popular genre, but it's something I've wanted to write for a long time. I think it may be making a small comeback though, with movies like Dark Tower, Magnificent Seven and The Sister Brothers coming in the next few years as well as Westworld on HBO(less)

Once again, it's been a while, but it's not like I've been sitting around doing nothing.  I continue to write and I've got quite a few projects on the go.  Here is a quick summary of what I've been working on so far this year.

January to May 2017

I finished the first draft of Where Shadows go to Die.  It is a stand alone western that is a cross between Dark Tower and Memento.  I've had my cousin... Read more of this blog post »

A Brother's Will (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: It’s been three months since the Lord of Cipher departed to secure a bride for his youngest son, Eryk, as part of a treaty to end a sixty year war with the Treeclaws of Unamia. Lord Yon’s three sons- Andor, Ori and Eryk- have not heard from their father and have become concerned. Their fears are confirmed when a mysterious girl named Anna arrives in Cipher with their father’s horse. She claims to be from Annulya, a town situated near the Shadow Mountains in the south, miles from Unamia. As acting lord, Andor decides that Ori- one of the most gifted swordsmen in Kallodhan- must go to Unamia in search of clues regarding their father’s whereabouts and he’s to take Anna with him. Someone is hiding something and Andor wants to know who. Ori sets the group’s course to take them through the Blackwood, a forest so dark that it is nearly impossible to see once within. But before Ori can conquer his childhood fear of the Blackwood, he and his company encounter bizarre circumstances in a nearby town. While back in Cipher, Eryk grows increasingly paranoid after a close brush with death, and harbors a secret that makes him wonder if he’s lost his mind. But time for paranoia is short once the castle is invaded… from within. Andor and Eryk are surrounded and Andor refuses to leave without his wife. He sets Eryk to the task of sending for aid, but before this can be done, Eryk will have to breakout of Cipher Castle.
Where Shadows Go To Die (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 12, 2015 10:50AM
Description: Bloodless Joe was once the most feared outlaw in the west… until he disappeared. No one knew what happened to him and most didn’t care. They were glad he was gone and prayed that he was dead, but he was something much worse. Joe finds himself stranded alone in the desert with no memory of how he got there. The last thing he remembers is killing one of the only people he ever liked. He can recall pieces of his old life and knows he was once a brutal man, but something is stopping him from reverting to his old ways. He begins his search to find out what happened to him, but is attacked by forces he’d never known before… emotions. New feelings creep up on him, such as fear and paranoia. He will have to push through each new emotion if he is to discover what happened to Bloodless Joe and answer the question, who am I now?
