In 2000, I entered two short stories in The Garden State Horror Writers' Association's annual short story contest. One story took Second Place and the other won the Graversen Award for that year. I was informed that no one has ever taken 2nd and 1st place together. After that, I was off and running.
I've placed fiction in a bunch of outlets including print anthologies such as TALES FROM A DARKER STATE and DARK NOTES FROM NJ as well as web outlets like HORRORFIND.COM (under Brian Keene's helm) and the IN A FEARFUL STATE e-anthology from the GSHW.
I currently reside in Central New Jersey where I split my time between my family and my writing. I've written several novels, all of which will be published in the next year or so from Screaming Aphony Press.
