Perfect For A Halloween Shiver

Click HERE to order! When I released ARE WE MONSTERS last year it was definitely timed to be a Halloween release because it was a book of monsters, both human and otherwise. As a fan of Halloween I love writing stories that are about or around Halloween, and while this book doesn't really delve into… Continue reading Perfect For A Halloween Shiver

THE MUNSTERS – review

Ya know what, I will give credit to Rob Zombie, not many filmmakers would dare to try to remake a horror classic and then later take on a beloved television series as a film. For a guy that has taken the very safe route on his last couple of films, he definitely put it all… Continue reading THE MUNSTERS – review

Self Check In

They say to check in with yourself to remain healthy, don’t they? To sort of do a self analysis and see where you are with things. See how you are. It makes sense because we all have a tendency to just power through things we maybe shouldn’t.  Oh, my foot hurts, eh, no big deal. … Continue reading Self Check In

Looking Ahead To 2023

Thus far, it’s been a pretty productive year for me as a writer. I have written three books thus far and started a fourth - really need to get back to that… I just finished the revision of the first of those books that will see the light of day, a dark thriller that moves… Continue reading Looking Ahead To 2023

Lion and Lamb

It is all too easy to look at things you do not agree with, tenets you do not follow, and ideals you do not hold dear and to dismiss them. It has become commonplace to look at the things others hold dear and to scoff because you don’t hold the same things dear. It’s a… Continue reading Lion and Lamb

A Chance

It never ceases to amaze me how wasteful business is. We hear all the time about how lazy workers are, how they don’t want to work in the office anymore, how they want all this pay, and all these benefits, and on and on, but it seems we don’t like to remind businesses that they… Continue reading A Chance

THIS IS A DOOR – Out Now

Just a quick reminder that my newest book - THIS IS A DOOR - is out now on Kindle and in paperback. This is a collection of some of my photography from over the years from the creepy to the cute. Here are a couple outtakes from some of the photos. BUY HERE!

Wondering Aloud

If we’re honest with ourselves it’s completely natural to wonder what happened to the people who used to populate our lives. Some we want to see that they’re happy and doing well and others you want to make sure that life is reminding them they’re jerks.  It’s completely normal, but not always healthy to look. … Continue reading Wondering Aloud

By Measures of Degree

There’s a frequent melody sung of late that goes something like this - Ohhh, the brain drain, the dear brain drain, what of the BRAAAAAIN DRAIN, what are we going to do?  It’s sort of catchy, it’s definitely got a groove.  It’s too similar though to this newer hit - Where did all the Woooooorkers… Continue reading By Measures of Degree

The Legacies We Leave

It’s hard to accurately reckon the effect someone has on you and your life. Outside of the obvious - he helped get me a job, she introduced me to the love of my life, they did this or that or whatever. That fact is that we don’t always know how deeply we are affected by… Continue reading The Legacies We Leave

What About Fall?

Living in a northern city, I can appreciate the trepidation that arrives with the changing of the leaves. It seems it’s either feast or famine for us thanks to the joys of climate change. We will get summer a little later and then we get a few days where it’s warm and makes you think… Continue reading What About Fall?

The Funhouse – movie review

It’s hard not to feel bad for the old titans of horror knowing that for many of them their lights were dimmed too early as their careers were derailed by studio systems that never fully appreciated all they had given to them. You think of someone like Tobe Hooper, whose TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE changed horror… Continue reading The Funhouse – movie review

Kings and Queens

The idea of having a monarch that oversees a nation feels a little outdated, doesn’t it? Sure, in many cases these are ornamental acknowledgments of the past and while they have a ‘say’ in things, they don’t run the nation. That isn’t always true, as you will get some countries where there is a ruler… Continue reading Kings and Queens
