Latest News

  • The easiest thing to do to keep the news up-to-date is drop this in here:

Amazon page:

I do try and claim all my books as soon as they are published on Amazon, so that is most likely to be a current update.

In other news, I have taken over editing of the Horrified Press imprint Thirteen O’Clock, so I am even less likely to be timely in website updates…but I will try. 🙂


  • And…the latest latest news was posted 18 months ago…needless to say, it is a bit out-of-date. 🙂

Since then, I took control of The Conn-Mann Chronicles as a self-published project, and have learned a LOT about that aspect of the business. Books I and II have been re-released, and Book III is also out now–Book IV will be out soon. Details on all of that can be found on the website linked above.

I have edited two anthologies for Mocha Memoirs: Avast Ye, Airships! and Ghosts, Gears, and Grimoires. And they released my collection of short stories RieTales.

I have written another book of poetry: Overheard in Hell

I wrote lyrics for another of Marc Gunn’s CD’s: Pirates Vs. Dragons and an accompanying “Journal” you can get on Amazon.

I have been privileged to be included in several more anthologies, most notably Killing It Softly.


  •  Things have been moving thick and fast since my last update. I think the updating for every sale individually is a thing of the past. But I will update more regularly, I promise.

For now, I am pleased to announce that the second book in The   Conn-Mann Chronicles will be out by the end of the summer.

And there are several anthologies coming out soon with my           work in them. 🙂
