About the Author
If you’ve ever heard the old folk song, The City of New Orleans, you’ve at least heard the name of the city I’m from. “All along the southbound odyssey. The train pulls out at Kankakee.” I have always had a pretty active imagination and a fascination for all thing’s horror, fantasy and science fiction. One of my favorite childhood memories was pretending to be asleep, so I could stay up late to watch horror movies on the tiny black n white tv in my bedroom. To this day, I look forward to the Halloween season for all the horror marathons on tv. I can’t get enough — even the ‘cheesy’ old ones. An all-around geek, I’m into many different fandoms. I have an appreciation for older cars and older things. Music is pretty much anything. Video games? Yes, in my spare time. My first published work was “Curse of the Dark Heart”, a short horror story included in Bleed Black Volume 1, (January 2015) an anthology put together by Black Heart Comics to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes. I love to write. I don’t want to write the next ‘big thing’ I just want to tell a good story. Aside from the Nephilim series, I have a few ideas within the science fiction genre I’m working on, another in the fantasy realm and a few just for laughs.
