About the Writing

My philosophy of writing is fairly simple: Entertain, enlighten, gently challenge or at least inspire thought, and leave my reader feeling better than when they started reading. If you want your entertainment to be dark, violent and depressing, I suggest you watch the news.

Genre labels are useful for marketing and for shelving in bookstores. Otherwise, labels get in the way. If you enjoy my blogs and essays in the Concord Monitor, I hope you’ll seek out my fiction wherever it gets shelved:

  • My SF novel Awake Chimera is due for release from Double Dragon in June 2015.

  •  Archimedes Nesselrode (Double Dragon 2013) may best be characterized as a whimsical romantic fantasy with a generous touch of humor.

  • Ferrit and Faux”, published in Speculative Mystery Iconoclast in 2008, is a medieval mystery spy spoof.

  • My short romance, “Unbranding”, was just published in NH Pulp’s Love Free or Die collection.  ALERT: The novel version is under construction.

  • Love Me, Love My Hellbeast” is a tongue-in-cheek bit of Lovecraftian horror.

I write stories for adults who are weary of adult books, who have been flocking to the YA market for something most adult books lack.  Youthful optimism, wonder at the amazing complexity of life, surprising characters, strange situations, imagination and humor, but seen through the eyes of someone who has already come of age and grown to maturity.
