Meet the Author

I learned to write before I could crawl, and I'm still not sure which is the more useful skill.


Drawn to the seamier side of human nature, my focus in fiction has always been thrillers, where my feelings of betrayal, revenge, bitterness, greed, paranoia, jealousy and madness find a socially acceptable display case.


Though I believe the drawing power of fiction comes from a universal human craving for clarity, justice, and fairness (things that seem to exist outside our imagination sparingly and only accidentally), I haven't yet managed to write a happy ending.


Despite all this, I still can't imagine doing anything else with my life.


A native of Upstate New York, I now divide my time between Manhattan and rural Pennsylvania, which of course is not as good as multiplying it.

    Definitely A "Twilight Zone" Kind of Vibe

    Very cool short story that plays stirs up psychology, biochemistry into a surreal portrait of a man who doesn't understand why he's not quite human.

    Oh, and there's a little dash of Greek tragedy thrown in for good measure.

    What's interesting with "The Allnighte"r is the emotional depth, rare for a horror or aternate world piece. It's that aspect that makes the ending so chilling.

    Highly recommend, and it's hard to argue with the price...

    Ok

    Well written but never really reaches that point where it grabs you. More drama than horror.

    Not bad

    Pretty good plotline. Could have been longer. Very simple read.
