About this blog

First of all, as you can tell I have changed this Blog site. I have now organized it as such:

This website will be a compilation of various bits and pieces I find interesting on the internet and beyond. As for my writing, I will be moving all my stories, both short and long, to a new website, same name but a much different service altogether. Hopefully this will make it easier for you to follow my writings and such.

What can I say... check it out for yourself.  In the authors own words...

In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.
But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.
Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.
His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.


Watch for it....

An ‘Unkindness’ of Ravens

     Overhead a strange new comet burns the night sky, while in the midst of Vatican City an ancient Bay tree, having blossomed faithfully for the last five hundred years, begins to lose its silvered leaves. In the Big Apple, frightful whispers, a murder of crows… ominous signs as ‘fear’ begins to spread. Of strange men and even stranger forces- and scrawled in blood down the side of the Majestic Theater:

'Tis thought the king is dead and we will not stay.
The bay-trees in our country are all wither'd
And meteors fright the fixed stars of heaven;
The pale-faced moon looks bloody on the earth
And lean-look'd prophets whisper fearful change’

     November the 17th, just five weeks shy of Christmas. On this particular night, a night like any other, Theo Valerian will meet his youngest son for the very first time and never even realize it-

And so it begins…

Believe in yourself... you can do anything.

An Unkindness of Ravens

What is it?
It's my new novel.

What's it about? See the blurb below... but that's not all. More is on its way.

What kind of book is it? Mystery, suspense... and a little urban legend all thrown in... unlike anything I have ever written before. From the raw and gritty streets of New York's Theatrical District to the distant fog shrouded shores of Great Britain. An epic story spanning generations and beyond, now in the hands of a thirteen year old child named Phillip.

The idea for this book began a few years back, and covered about 150 pages plus notes. It has grown some since then, and taken on a life of it's own. I hope you join me on the grand journey, of a boy trying to find his dad, and a man in search of his family.

I'll keep you posted.

News from the King

As many of you might guess, I am a huge fan of Stephen King, have been for most of my life... and that's been for quite some time. (At least since the release of 'The Stand'. Needless to say, any time Mr. King releases something new, I'm all over it. Some years ago Mr. King wrote a short 'long' story called The Cannibals. Lucky for us, after losing it twice, and rewriting it several times, this piece has grown to become his November release of 'Under The Dome'. I can hardly wait myself. There are various links scattered throughout the net regarding this later work, various covers, etc. Lilja's Library is an invaluable resource when it comes to anything King, and a site I regularly visit myself. So if you are interested in reading the work which led up to his newest release, click here to download a sneak peak 60 page insight into one of, if not the greatest, mind in horror today. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Just about sums it all up, don't you think???
