I'm a writer, ex-poet, lapsed cowboy and whiskey enthusiast living in Portland, Oregon, with my lovely life, writing and backgammon partner Kathleen McFall.

We've written seven books together so far, including three in our new alternative history series about the infamous outlaw lovers:

Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road
Bonnie and Clyde: Dam Nation
Bonnie and Clyde: Radioactive (Out now!)

And we wrote four books in the award-winning The Cowboy and Vampire Collection:

A Very Unusual Romance
Blood and Whiskey
Rough Trails and Shallow Graves (named to Kirkus Reviews best indie books of 2014)
The Last Sunset (silver medalist, 2017 Independent Publisher National Book Awards; Indie Reader best books of 2016)

I also wrote Just West of Hell, a collect
