A Journey of the Imagination

A Brief Introduction

Hi, and thanks for visiting my site. I wanted to provide a brief introduction to anyone who may be visiting for the first time.

I am a Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of dark thrillers and psychological suspense. My debut novel, We Are Monsters, was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First novel, and has received the following praise from authors and industry critics. Film rights for a movie adaptation were purchased by Executive Producer, Jason Shuman.

My short fiction has been published in many notable magazines and anthologies, most recently Gutted: Beautiful Horror Stories, where professional critics have called my story the strongest among an all-star cast that includes multiple New York Times bestselling authors.

I am currently preparing to pitch two novels:

  1. A new psychological horror novel that casts the reader as a protagonist in a frightening urban legend.
  2. The first novel in a trilogy of dark sci-fi thrillers that integrates virtual reality technology into the story experience.

Please contact me to discuss a project, or just to chat. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Just read your short story in Gutted and wow is it great. Just started reading again as I stopped a few years ago for unknown reasons. I like the sense of humor of the Dad I can imagine Anthony Jezelnik playing the part. Anyhow, I really enjoyed it, glad people like you are still around.

  2. Thanks, Christian! That’s nice to hear. Glad you’re reading again. Keep it up.
