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.

Dark Doorways

Post-Mortem Press has released its best of anthology: Dark Doorways. The work will feature Jack Ketchum and other famous folks as well as a slew of soon-to-be famous writers. I'm one of them! My story: "The Reservoir" was selected to appear amongst these pillars of the horror-writing community. I am very honored. The other writers had some nice things to say about my little yarn about a haunted reservoir, a church picnic gone bad, and a very brave boy. My co-worker says she thinks about it every time she drives by the Moore Dam reservoir (which inspired the story). I am very excited about this turn of events.

Eric Beebe, the force behind Post-Mortem, is most certainly the man.

Check it out at Amazon.com in print and as an e-book.

I have been gone, but I'm still here


Yeah, I'm still here. I have had a dickens of a time writing. School started and every appliance, vehicle and entertainment device I own seemed to go on the fritz. But, now I'm back in the swing of things and writing up a storm. I should crank out a couple more chapters of Wardmaster today. I am just about to reach the half way mark of the novel. My goal is to be done by Christmas. We'll see.

I bought a kindle (before everything needed to be fixed). I'm impressed with my new found ability to read what I want, when I want. I also like the fact that I've bought one book since I got it a month ago. The opportunity to read free stuff, and thereby for author's to get noticed is pretty impressive.

My boys and are reading Skullduggery Pleasant series. What a treat! I downloaded the first book for free, and you can bet we'll be buying the rest, and my boys will be encouraging their friends to read them, too. I will remember this as my fantasy series begin to come out.

Well, I will write more when I hit the half way mark. I've decided to quit writing my book reviews here, and keep it on Goodreads (a great site!). I have read recently:

The Tale of the Vampire Bride- Great book! A worthy prequel to Dracula!

Bob Moore: No Hero- A great superhero novel, free on kindle
