In the Dark of the Grove

Gurt Dog Press (Oct. 2021)

Horror, Urban Gothic

Discover the Dark Heart of America’s Heartland.

Essen, Indiana never felt like home to Kyle Thomas. Now, as he returns fifteen years after he was kicked out for being gay, he finds it stranger than ever. His novelist father, days after releasing his newest book—Dunbar’s Grove—committed suicide. And most people think his father’s book was a thinly-disguised confession to the murder of Kyle’s mother years before.

A mysterious note in his father’s old typewriter points to a secret the town is keeping. How did this little town in the middle of nowhere get so much money? What does the elite Minty Green Club have to do with it?

Kyle decides to put his investigative journalist skills to the test, reconnecting with old friends and running into old foes. The closer he gets to the town’s secrets, the fewer people he can trust and the more every trail seems to lead to the mysterious grove of trees outside of town.

Science Fiction, Fantasy
This collection features my story “Starstation to Starstaion.” It finds Doctor Who spin-off character Iris Wildthyme interacting with different figures from history. The title is a tip-off to which historical figure Iris encounters in my story. Although not in the way you might expect.

Eon
Quest

Self-Published (Nov. 2015)

Science Fiction, Fantasy
A graphic novel that mimicked the style of “mini-comics” that were included with action figures in the 80s. This was originally created for an action figure line I tried to get funding for on Kickstarter. I’ve since made the graphic novel available digitally through Comixology. Features art by Eder Messias and Zid.

Grace & Witherbloom

Self-Published (Nov. 2012)

Science Fiction, Steampunk
A collection of seven novellas published throughout 2012, it concerned the strange little girl Helen Grace and her faithful automaton companion Josiah Witherbloom. It’s now out of print as I pulled it to give it a better edit and revision. Which I’d still like to get to some day.
