Tomorrow night at 8:00 pm EST, Tamara Thorne and I will on Authors on the Air – on the other side of the mic. Host Pam Stack is turning the tables and will be interviewing us about our upcoming novel, THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING, which will be available soon.

Also, my hometown of Mt. Pleasant, Utah, did a feature in their local newspaper, The Pyramid, about THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING’S release. Give it a read and find out the official title of my upcoming solo novel, which will be available later this year.

It’s a matter of days now until we unleash the beast that is THE CLIFFHOUSE HAUNTING on an unsuspecting public, and we’re very excited to do so. Tune in to Authors on the Air tomorrow night at 8 to hear more about this novel.

Current Status & Upcoming Events


Hello all,

My collaborator, Tamara Thorne, and I have made substantial progress on Grandma’s Rack these past two weeks. I’ve completed all my scenes in acts one and two and am well into the remaining scenes of act three. Tamara is kicking out scenes of her own as well as spending a lot of time editing and getting this story put into some kind of sequence. We’re at the end of the story so the climax is rising and the tension is high. The Rack is still surprising us with new twists and turns, but we’re still hopeful it will be completed in spring and, hopefully, available to buy this summer.

I’m scheduled to appear on Writerly Wednesday which will be coming up soon. I finished the interview questions earlier this week and am just waiting to find out the date I’ll be on. Also, Tamara and I have been booked for an in-depth interview at Ginger Nuts of Horror, the site to go to for the latest news and greatest reviews of all things horror. As soon as we know, we will post the date that the interview will go live. Also, the two of us are scheduled for a live radio interview on April 17th at Authors on the Air. Visit my website – The Dungeon – for more information on interviews, past and future.

Finally, if you missed it, we have compiled into one post the records of the five nights we spent in an allegedly haunted cabin up in Gold Country late last year.

So, until next time,

Happy haunting…
