To say I’m thrilled with this latest amazing development from Sunbury Press is an understatement. Look for the logo above for the absolute best in horror fiction from HELLBENDER BOOKS.

Many more stories coming very soon.

2017 has been a very busy year so far with three reworked books out earlier this year from Sunbury Press, “13 Deadly Endings”, “What Waits Beneath” and “Burner”. Looming on the horizon are two more novels, “From The Dark” and “Circle of Blood” as well as short story collections “Malaformed Realities Vol. 2” and “Vol. 3”

Later this year or early 2018 will see the release of “Dead Kill Book 2: The Ridge of War”, the third in my Dead Kill series. In addition, I will be starting a new series, “Death Bringer Jones, Zombie Slayer”. If that isn’t enough, later in 2018 we’ll be releasing “Malaformed Realities Vol. 4″ and quite possibly Vol 5”. With well over one hundred short stories in the pipeline and many, many more to come there will always be a backlog of work waiting for the “Realities” short story series.

Check out the Bibliography page of this site for more detailed accounting of where you can find my various books and short stories.

Brag Shelves

People often ask me just how many books I’ve written and how many anthologies, magazines and such I’ve been involved in since I started publishing back in 2010. The answer is… a whole bunch. So here’s my brag shelves. I try to get a physical copy of everywhere I’m published but often miss a few, especially in the case of publications that are strictly e-books. But all in all it’s not to shabby a collection. It also is constantly growing. As of this writing, or at any time there are probably 10 or more anthologies in the works waiting to be published, which will eventually make it to my shelves. The book markers denote where in the anthologies my stories appear. Some anthologies have multiple stories of mine in them as well.
