I’m a jack-of-all-trades fiction writer from the eastern United States. I’m currently living in Maine, but I’ve lived in just about every state that can be considered “NorthEast.” Writing is currently my ‘side gig’ as I have a full-time day job to pay the bills.
I started writing when I was a little, little kid, and even then, my stories tended to sway toward horror or dark fantasy. I very distinctly remember writing a Halloween story in sixth grade where nearly all of my classmates ended up murdered by another. Oh, and I made that other, murdery classmate a werewolf. That was incidentally the first story I ever tried to turn into a novel, and I’m near positive I still have it tucked away somewhere in the dark, dusty corners of my writing folder, never to be seen again.
I write a little bit of everything, but my preferred genres are horror, fantasy, and speculative fiction. I’ve also written a little bit of YA, erotica, and I’ve tried my hand a time or two at New Adult, but I always come back to my first love of speculative fiction.
From Haunted House Publishing and the Nosleep Author Alliance, the Monstronomicon is an insane collection of 100 short stories from 70 different authors. My story, I Think I saw my Sister Yesterday, about a girl looking for her sister in an early post-apocalyptic world, sits alongside many other stories, all featuring a unique monster outside of the well-used vampires, werewolves, zombies or ghouls.

Proceeds of book sales go to fundraising for a series of short horror films based on the stories within.
From Haunted House Publishing, The Tavistock Galleria: Short Horror Stories from America’s Retail Wasteland is a collection of stories taking place in a mall. The stories range from a thriving mall to a dying wasteland of dwindling shoppers, to a closed, haunted burial ground of a former retail paradise. My story, Bitchcraft, sits somewhere in the middle, centering around a young man desperate for a summer job, and getting more than he bargained when curiosity gets the better of him at a well-known alternative/goth store. You can get your copy here.
I’ve been accepted into an all-women horror anthology entitled Daughters of Darkness. We will have a Kickstarter to raise funding for publication (more info on that as it comes). If you’d like to get updates on the anthology straight to your own inbox, you can sign up for the Daughters of Darkness mailing list here.
