Welcome to my author site, where I am currently focusing on a paranormal urban fantasy set and a how-to on starting your own ghostwriting business or side gig.

Many of you know that I have been a freelance writer and editor for 20+ years, and I ghostwrite novels, too.

In 2017, I began to write books in the Urban Fantasy genre under my own name, as well. This site is dedicated to my books — the ones under my own name, not someone else’s. From here, you can also get to my email newsletters.

What’s Going On?

Supernatural / Urban Fantasy – Rephaim: Bloodlines Series

  • Author PicA series with supporting short stories, these paranormal & supernatural tales are full of angels, demons, and not-so-helpless mortals with special powers of their own.
  • I’m stuffing it with an Ark-load of twists to the standard genre assumptions.
  • I will write the entire first trilogy before publishing the first book, and they should start launching in early 2018.
  • I have been releasing a series of short stories until then. Pay attention, if you like paranormal/urban fantasy.
  • NOVELS STATUS: #1 in editing; #2 in drafting
  • Short Stories: #1 through #4 available now! #5 in editing
