So here we are, 2022… And Dead Friends has still not been released. Still only a rough draft languishing in writer’s purgatory as I have still not finished the rewrite and sent it off to my editor for publication… A lot has happened in four years, and I apologize for those who have been waiting for my next novel with how long this has taken.

And so, I am reaching out and asking for your help. Keep prodding me, keep me sane, keep me working on it. I have 15 chapters so far that have been re-written, with 30 more to go.

I’m going to start posting the rewrite up here chapter by chapter, week by week. With how long it has taken to finish this book, I’m sure there are plot holes that I am missing, and mistakes I’m making. I’m hoping that you can help me find them as we work through finishing this book.

I’m hoping that you will read through and provide feedback, let me know of issues as they come up. Don’t hesitate to comment and let me know how you feel the book is coming. I look forward to your thoughts and feeling as I work to finish it.

I’ll admit that it has been hard for me finish. So much of the world h as been upended for me over the last three years and so it has been hard to stay focused. I hope with your help, that we can keep me on course and that by the end of this summer, we’ll have the rewrite done, and I can send it to my editor and have this released by this time next year.

I thank you all for your help.


Here Be Dragons now available!


Riley had never felt she was special… but when she woke up in the hospital, the world as she knew it was about to change. With one touch she was brought into the dreamscape. She found herself facing down her first nightmare creature and saving a guy from a fierce dragon. It was in his nightmare that she met the Dream Chasers, a secret organization that travels into and saves people from their own bad dreams.

Riley has powers that other Dream Chasers do not possess. She can enter dreams with only a touch, and once there can do things that no other Dream Chasers could. Now they need her special talents because without her, they would never defeat their greatest foe… A dream wraith that is stronger and more powerful than they have ever seen.

Fight Dragons with Lightsabers..?

Take on Knights and Kings with a Fire Axe…?

Are you ready to be a Dream Chaser?

Just remember that before you enter into the world of the dream chasers…

1.) Don’t fall asleep. Your nightmares might contain dragons that will eat you.

2.) If you do sleep, avoid dark caverns. Goblins may lurk around that next corner.

3.) Frogs are not disgusting.

4.) Remember that in the dreamscape, nothing is real. Reality is still the only place you can eat pizza!

New Year’s update

Happy New Year…

Happy… new… year…

So as we bring in the new year, I want to look back at 2019 and thank everyone who has been so supportive. To those who do not know, this had been a rough year. Had my first surgery that was minor in May, and I thought it would be my last for awhile… then I go into the hospital in August to wake up a week later in September, having been cut open and told I’ll never have 100% lung capacity ever again.

That scare… it has made me evaluate many things in my life and while I haven’t given up on my writing, it has made me deprioritize. I’ve focused this last year to spend more time with my family, church, and working on getting healthy. I’m still have a number of writing projects in the works, but progress is slow and I have only vague ETA’s on when they’ll be done.

My main focus right now is Dead Friends. I’m near done with the rough draft. I do feel there will be some rewrites that my experience this last year will help shape into some new terrifying goodness, so that may delay the release. My goal is to have this out by August of 2020.

I also have had Warm Nights done for awhile, the third chapter in my Space Trucker series. It just needs to be edited… I’m just not happy with the story and my beta readers have also had issues. It needs … something … I have some ideas that I’m still toying with. I hope to have this out by March and the audiobook shortly thereafter.

I also have Here Be Dragons done. The last round of edits just need to be reviewed and this will be ready to be released. Still need to approve the final cover as well. I hope to have this released by June…

Another development is that I am no longer being published through Breaking Fate Publishing. We have parted ways, and I have kept ownership of the rights for all my work, so they will continue to be available. I am looking for a new home for my work, and when Dead Friends is finished I may try to find a new publisher or self publish. The decision has yet to be made.

That’s all the bad news. This has actually been an amazing year. I am now married to an amazing woman whom I love so much. My day job is going well, and we’re happy. Life is good, I feel like there is more I wanted to add on this front, but I don’t normally stay up this late and forgot what it was.

So that is my look back and a look forward. I hope everyone is well and may you have an amazing new year.


Hatching some positive reviews…

Hatched has had a string of really positive reviews lately and I thought I would share a few of them with you…

5 Stars

Creepy, Crawly, Heebee, Jeebees In The Best Possible Way

This book was gloriously creepy. The idea of a viral spider outbreak just makes my skin crawl. For a story to illicit the amount of fidgeting and searching for that ever elusive spider crawling down your back, it is amazing.

A very original idea that was executed in a fast paced, character driven story. Can’t ask for more than that. I highly recommend this book.


4 Stars

Interesting concept and take on zombies!

I’ve read just about every zombie book around on audible. One of my favorite genres. This book was so far different than the others and that’s what made it awesome. It was cool seeing the becoming a zombie part of the story as you don’t really see that in other books. Story left off at a point where you definitely want more. Oh ya and I’m terrified of spiders and that made this book hard to get through…. In a good way lol.


5 Stars


I hate spiders! Even more now that I listened to this audible.
A unique idea for the start of a new horror series.

The narrator does a wonderful job with his narration.


Have you gotten your copy? It’s available to read free through Kindle Unlimited and on Audible. You can also request it at any local book store.


Dead Friends Audio

We tried an experiment today and hope that you will help us out by providing feedback. This is our first attempt. It was recorded using just iPhone Earbuds and no real preparation. This is also Patty Clark first audiobook narration. (That being said, I think she did a fantastic job).

Please let us know what you think.

This is a segment of Chapter 1 for the Work in Progress novel, Dead Friends.

My 15 Minutes…

If you follow my facebook page, then you would have seen that I was featured in the Lasalle-Peru newspaper, the News Tribune. I had been interviewed a while back and knew that they had planned on publishing a piece, but I had not known the extent. When I had posted the link to their website on my Facebook page, I hadn’t seen the article, but only the online piece.

Click Here for the full article

It was a much larger piece than I had expected, and thought I would share it. Thank you to the News Tribune for giving me so much space. It is amazing to see it.

For more updates…

To the January Giveaway. I will be contacting winners soon through email. I thank everyone who participated and am humbled by those who continue to follow me and my work. I hope you continue reading.

As too Dead Friends…

The biggest forthcoming change is that starting next week, I will be posting a chapter ahead on my Patreon for those who are contributing. I’m not doing it to punish those who read for free, but instead want to give thanks to those who are paying to support my endeavors. I will still be posting free chapters to this page at the same regular intervals.

In addition, I’m going to be working on a Table of Contents for Dead Friends so that those who haven’t checked back in awhile while have a quick way of getting to the chapter you were on. We are going to soon be over 20 chapters, and I have already written 100,000 words of the story (or close to it) so there will be plenty to read. I hope that you continue to do so and continue to offer me great feedback into the story.

And now, I will talk about the nut house, or actually, The Nut Job. I have agreed to join the yet untitled universe of Gear Dreary. This is a post-apocalyptic future story currently being written by Mike Ennenbach. Once I am caught up on a few writing projects, I will be collaborating with him and adding some fiction to his ever increasing world. So that you can get your feet wet into that world, I will be sharing some of his fiction regularly to this site. I hope you enjoy as the first story in the Gear Dreary universe is The Nut Job. (As of now, the working title for the universe is Hellion Four and so I will be using that in reference to it on this site)

Thank You,
