1. Will you publish my book?
I am no longer publishing anyone but myself. I want to work on more projects in the future such as anthologies, but I will not be publishing single author books.
2. Why do you want to do art AND write?
I'm not really sure. I love creating! I'm my best and happiest when working on creative projects. I'm also pretty keen at science so I have to express all of those things to fulfill myself.
3. Where do you get your ideas for stories?
I usually will have a flash of a person, a voice, or an image in my mind and then it just goes from there. In a recent story for When the Dead Books' anthology GIVE, I heard a woman with a thick Eastern European accent say, "Is it better to have one nut or two?" The story sort of went pretty gruesome from there. As I have evolved as a creator, it can now be an object, a scent, or just about anything that inspires me.
4. When do you plan to release your next book?
The short answer is that I have no idea. I'm working on a lot of things professionally. Follow my fan page on Facebook or check here, I'll let you know.
A collection of short stories about women, zombies, and the apocalypse.
Bullied shy nerd or teenage nightmare monster?
Two unlikely survivors fight zombies and a corporate mogul from hell on the sixth floor of a locked down building at the beginning of the apocalypse.
Yin and Yang: Relationships is the story of two very different sadistic serial killers and how one wants to fix the other. A super fun and over the top story to write.
A story written with Ken Scholes set at Cannon Beach, Oregon that is sci-fi with a dash of romance. It has elements of Pleiadian mythos and reminds me of the movie, Same Time, Last Year.
This antho was a labor of love! I am a huge zombie fan. The stories are unique, interesting, and just what the zombie genre needs. Michelle Kilmer is the female model on the front. I loved putting a beautiful woman with a shaved head on the front of the cover. We need more women who are not stereotypes on the covers of books. Featuring Randy Henderson, Michelle Kilmer, Tom D Wright, Matt Youngmark, and many more.
