Welcome to my Blog! Here you'll find posts about my life, inspiration I find on the way, and of course, writing updates, excerpts, and cover reveals! I'll even be reviewing books I read (if you're here for movies I'm into, check Monster thoughts). Grab your tea (or coffee) and stay awhile!

Editing is OVER!

And believe me, I have been celebrating in my own way (drowning in Netflix shows counts as celebrating, hush), and I’m overjoyed at the story I have now. And as for what has been done with the story – well you’ll have to keep reading future blog posts to find out. 😉
Moving on, The Dark World is the novel I’m talking about in case you’re a newcomer to this blog, and you can read more about it by clicking the link up there on the navigation bar.

And with the completion of The Dark World, (for the millionth time), I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the kinds of stories I want to write and where I want to take my career – ’cause I’ve decided this is what I’m doing for the rest of my life – and it’s fantasy…with a lean toward horror, and darkness, which you’d know if you read my most recent work, my short story, A Night of Frivolity.

I don’t know, it’s something about these kinds of stories that pull to me, motivate me, captivate me, and my characters’ processes are more psychological than anything despite the physical changes to themselves and their world. It’s how I’ve…processed my own life – very much in my own head – and I didn’t know there was another way to do this until I started actually living my life, and I’m sure many of my characters will walk away from their stories with similar revelations, though it won’t be my goal in life to make every story the same, but naturally I do think many writers have a certain theme, and for now at least, I believe this one is mine.

I’m open to change, and to growing as a person and a writer, and I welcome all the change that living life brings – and I can only hope that this shines through in my writing.

Oh, and I’m definitely not shying away from the gritty, the real, the dark, the death…it’s all some of us have, after all.

‘Till next time, keep your bite.

Gothic Horror And Inspiration
It was always my intention as of late, with Sinner Sharpe to delve into the horror he's facing--not physical horror--at least not yet, but the mental horror. He's seeing horrific visions, he's losing large gaps of time, he's being attacked on his ship (an already enclosed space) for weeks.
DRACULA is (finally) out in E-Book Format!
If you haven't opened your email by now (and why aren't you subscribed to the newsletter, yet?) then you don't know that DRACULA: Book 6, the final book in The Dark World series has been released!
‘Dracula’ is Live – The End of The Dark World series Is Here
It's been a wild ride since the start of The Dark World series with Book 1 back in 2013/2014. Naturally, a lot has changed since the first book (just read through the blog to see how much), and although this journey has been beset with trials, drawbacks, and more, I'm proud to say the series is finally finished. I feel free. Elated.
