In Which I Meet Aimee Bender and Swoon

  Aimee Bender is one of my favorite authors. I first heard of her when somebody read my short story “Flat, Flat World” and said, “You read Aimee Bender, right?” I was introduced to this brilliant, wise world rife with magical realism and some of the most beautiful prose I’ve ever read. Phrases fairly drip from her words like the … Read More

BJ Novak and Us: A Story of Sharks

So my writing group The Illiterati were invited to a VIP Reception for writer/actor/producer BJ Novak. He’s a headliner at the Vegas Valley Book Festival, and since Mason and I are in the Lost and Found in Las Vegas anthology that just came out, we scored tickets. Yay! It’s awesome. BJ was friendly and funny and everything you’d expect. We … Read More

Preorder Todd Keisling’s Ugly Little Things Hardcover Package

So I really like Todd Keisling’s work. It’s dark, solid, varied, and super creepy. I mean, suuuuuper creepy. I know I’ll never read his The Harbinger again. Twisted little dolls? Ahhhhhh! ANYWAY!

AH! I Have So Much To Tell You!

About white water rapids, black bears, awesome projects, and general stuff! But not now. I’m packing my suitcase. Literally sitting on top of it and bouncing because it’s a bit overstuffed. I’m currently in Big Sky, Montana. In a week I’ll be in New Orleans for the World Horror Convention. It’s been awesome and busy. But for now, I leave … Read More

50 Shades of Decay: An Interview with Laura J. Hickman

What’s sexy about zombies? 51 authors answered that question with wild, weird, and titillating tales – because true love never dies, it just decays… Laura was literally the first friend that I made when I moved to Las Vegas seven years ago. So when I was asked to interview a 50 Shades of Decay author, I was delighted to pick her! … Read More

Pre-Order Winter Wonders!

The wonderful thing about the blog tour is that I’m able to chat with some dear, dear friends.  Perhaps the only negative is that I feel I’m all, “Bring out yer dead! And come buy my book!” and that’s just uncomfortable. In my head, I’ve written you blog posts about my Bucket List, my son’s love for hamburger buns, and … Read More
