My latest accepted short story will appear in a horror collection later this year! Announcement and link to follow!
Read my short story “My Pet Trilobite” in Ricky’s Back Yard based on a real-life sideshow fraud.
Read my short story “The Death of the Dinosaurs” in Ricky’s Back Yard based on Ken Ham’s Creation Museum.
Other published works: “Don’t Ask” in Profane Journal, “Selfie” in Deadly Quill, and “Passover” in Sprout.
Read unpublished papers at my Academia.edu webpage.

Everyone noticed the remarkable effect that this young Belgian girl seemed to have on the thirty-nine year-old man. He became energetic, humorous… Read more
