Castle of Horror 11


The 11th volume of the long-running Castle of Horror anthology series from Castle Bridge Media features stories of revenge.


My story, "Hard Sell," is set in the quintessential Curio Shop that only appears when vulnerable people are looking for a quick fix to their problems. "Hard Sell" is about a bereaved widow seeking revenge on the person she blames for her husband's death.


Castle of Horror 11: Revenge is available now from Amazon.

The Chaos Clock


The Chaos Clock was created as a Kickstarter stretch goal by eSpec Books. The anthology brings together an amazing selection of modern horror writers to create a selection of tales of eldritch horror set in steampunk universes.


My story, "Sky Rivers of Gray," depicts the  aftermath of a 19th century archeologist's obsession with an Egyptian sarcophagus that contained a horrific secret.


The Chaos Clock is available to purchase at Good Reads.
