KEPT

Twelve massive ships leave the dying earth, heading into the great unknown, seeking new life among the stars.
One of the ships, GIA, crashes on Kepler, which is already inhabited. Now at the mercy of the alien race, the humans are held in an underground cavern.
Would they still have gone knowing that they would be stripped of all humanity?
Under the constant eye of the aliens, a few men discover there may be a way out of the cavern.
But to where?
How will they escape and what will they encounter if they succeed?

HANDSOME

Being handsome has its advantages and affords him easy access into people’s homes. They quickly learn you can not judge a book by its cover when they pay the ultimate price with their lives. He didn’t ask to look the way he does, nor to lose his loving mother at such a young age. Dealing with unwanted memories, he will find a way to erase his past by cleansing the city as he sees fit.
Detective Marcy Gagon, finds at times her relationship with the lead coroner, Krista Jones, a harder case to crack than the one she’s trying to solve. She feels alone in the hunt for a man whom she believes is a serial killer. The Chief of Police refuses to entertain the possibility that Toronto has yet another serial killer until she can bring him solid proof. But when another couple are killed within 24 hours of the last, Marcy gets the push she needs, and new leads come pouring in. Fully engulfed in her job, she also learns a deeper secret to her girlfriend’s past that only strengthens their bond. Hot on the heels of a killer, Marcy must somehow bring his reign of terror to an end without letting her personal life interfere.

Expand your writing horizon

We tend to stick to what we know, or what others say they want from us. But why?

As a writer you are a born creator, so expand your skill set and try something new. For instance, I began writing novels right out the gate. I’ve never cared to read short stories because it felt like a snippet to something bigger and I was always left wanting more.

However as I am honing my craft, I discovered short stories are the best way to tighten my skills. When I started writing the shorts, I started reading them too – now I love them.

One day I was approached to write a 15 min screenplay. HUH, I never wanted to do this before, but I did it and guess what – I enjoyed the new style it required!

Don’t pigeon hole yourself, you never know what else you will like, and perhaps even be more excited to work on.

Through experimenting, I have a song, poetry, kids picture books, YA novels, horror, crime, sci-fi, a film produced and another complete full length movie written.

Stay fresh and innovative and check out what all you can do too!

#HorrorZinesBookofGhostStories Ebook is ready! I’m in here with some of the #HorrorMasters Bentley Little, Graham Masterton, Joe Lansdale and more!  Okay you’ve probably seen it shared on Facebook already, but hey, I’m excited.

“This collection of ghost stories is fresh, varied, and entertaining. Perfect company for a long winter’s night.” – Owen King, co-author of Sleeping Beauties

103673044_3430851303606390_7177657732898661268_n“An incredibly creepy collection of stories of the recently and not so recently dead, written by some of the finest writers in horror. I suggest that when reading, do so in the daylight, because reading these at night will only make you more aware of your own, unempty house.” – Susie Moloney, author of The Dwelling and The Thirteen

 

“Gruesome, eerie, horrific, sometimes uplifting; this is a terrific selection of ghost stories that satisfy the soul—they chill the blood, too.” – Simon Clark, author of Whitby Vampyrrhic

“Looking for a perfect evening? Spend the night hunkered down in your favorite chair with only a reading light on, and dive into The Horror Zine’s Book of Ghost Stories. Forget sleep, these tales will keep you enthralled till daybreak.” – Tony Tremblay, author of The Moore House

“Nobody keeps the supernatural alive like The Horror Zine.” – Scott Nicholson, author of The Red Church

How I Panster

Hi all! Okay I hate videos’ of myself, but because so many people ask how I write as a panster—no it’s not me putting on pants! This is a quick example of my writing process.

Thanks for watching, toss me a like or a subscribe, you never know what crazy thing I’ll do next.

Audio book that sounds like a radio show

I was more than impressed when I listened to this audio book yesterday, and to be this thrilled about a narrator is saying something. After all, I just finished Duma Key by Stephen King, and he pays for the best.

Well, Nathan Tarantla‘s work is leaps and bounds above all that.

For the first time, (that I know of), a book is read with sound effects in the background. There were people screaming, guns firing, thunder rolling, a crackling fire and so much more. I was immediately immersed in the story—and transported to when I used to listen to the old radio shows. I loved those shows, and to have a story read in this vein was enthralling.

I will certainly be seeking his skills when I produce my next audio book.

The importance of not blogging

I was a steady once a week blogger, for three years. That is a lot of blogs.  I wrote about writing, trial and error, and how to promote. Or I’d share my newest book, free stories, author spotlights, and interviews. Plus tons of other fun, writerly things during that time. 

But then I got serious about putting that time to better use and began concentrating more on short stories. Stories that would be worthy of submitting to anthologies. While I still have novels in the works, this is what I’ve done in Sept/Oct of 2019 – with still more to come!

 

 

The Elements of Horror. 

I missed the deadline for fire – but you need the entire collection anyway – don’t you think?
