48 States named one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Indie Books of 2022!
A line from one of this year’s best books reads, “Life was a horror movie, but only if you looked for it.” No one needs to look for horror now; it’s all around us.

PREVIEW: 48 States, Chapter 1
Here’s a sneak preview of my latest project, 48 STATES. Enjoy! Dark and cold. That was North Dakota in a nutshell. Prior to the relocations, it bore the distinct honor of being the least visited state in the nation. Remote, desolate and unforgiving, it never garnered much regard from humanity.

2017: Getting Back on Track
