Nearly all my writing takes place in settings other than the real world, and involve supernatural, futuristic, or similar elements. My books and my worlds tend to deal with dark themes, and elements of horror. I especially enjoy anchoring my stories in historical events, but giving them a speculative twist. For example, in my Arcane West stories the country is dealing with the supernatural fallout of the Civil War. General Sherman’s March to the Sea tore apart the ley-line stretching from Atlanta to Savannah, opening supernatural rifts and unleashing all sorts of horrors.
The Arcane Interbellum series continues that theme, bringing the timeline up to the 1930s, so my characters have to deal with supernatural events during the buildup to WWII.
I love writers who create worlds first, and then tell a bunch of different stories within them.
Below is a list of my many projects, some of which are already completed, or will be soon. I’ll update this page when the different books are out, so feel free to check back often. Or, if you prefer, join my mailing list for updates.
