About Me

My photo
I write and live with my beautiful wife, Sandra, and sons (Solstice, Finnegan and Brahms) in a little-big house on a dirt road in a valley in the hills. My secret identity struggles through the grind of teaching high school English to the denizens of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

Spooked myself out.

I've had this idea for a horror story for over a year. It seemed to fit the requirements for an anthology submission call, so I wrote it. Wow, I am one sick puppy. I didn't realize that I had quite so dark a side. I hope they enjoy being disturbed in the editor's office.

This has been a tough summer. My boy is very sick. My teenagers are very teenagery. My beautiful wife has taken pity on me and given me a this week to write. I edited some old tales, wrote a huge novelette, and a short story about a vampire mother. The novelette is about a group of kids that start performing necromancy in their club house.

So, I have averaged about a story a week this summer. Not horrible, but not what I wanted, so I'm going to stop babbling on the blog and start writing...

Oh, yeah, I'm going to the circus tonight with my super twins! Yeah!



  1. I hope your son feels better soon.

  2. OK....what does it say about me that as soon as I read this post I was all "oooo...I want to read THAT!" :P lol
