Greetings, lovers of fine literature!
Sorry you blundered onto the wrong site.
You’ll have to settle for snarky talking swords, goofy pirates, oozing zombies, and poop monsters. Loads of poop monsters.
Bronze Medal winner,
2010 Independent Publishers Book Awards
Sorry I haven’t been updating this page. But I have a REALLY great excuse.
I’m now the proud owner of a certified pre-owned heart (!)
As of April 7, 2019, I’m running on a new engine.
Working on a snarky nonfiction book about the experience. Stay tuned.
I have a story in the new Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers anthology, False Faces.
The previous anthology, which also contributed to, won the Colorado Book Award.
This one was also nominated, but did not win.
We won the 2017 Colorado Book Award for Best Anthology!
My story “Outside the Realm of Time” (golem vs. zombies in 1899 Denver–woo-hoo!) will appear in next year’s Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers anthology (the one above took home this year’s Colorado Book Award). That makes 3 out of the past 4 anthologies that I’ve been in, and 2 of those were finalists or winners of the CPA.
I’ll was at Denver Comic-Con June 18 & 19, just walking around as a tourist for once.
Saturday night I was in the costume contest (advanced division) as Uncle Deadly from ‘The Muppets.’
I now have a YouTube channel, Mr. Shakespeare Reads, where I
recorded myself reciting all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets in
full doublet and ruff (as one does).
I have 4 essays about Victorian-era violence/self-defense in this new anthology.
Please visit the Archived Blogs page for my memorial to author and best friend M.M. Bennetts.
Book 3 of the Legacy Stone series, Jasper’s Magick Corset, is now available (sorry for the 3-year wait, all sorts of things cropping up at the last minute; how am I for time?)
My Steampunk novel Paragon of the Eccentric just won the Colorado Gold contest (Speculative Fiction category) sponsored by Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.
Thanks to the judges and all who supported it.

Part 3 of my guest blog about Victorian violence is now on the English Historical Fiction Authors site.
