My tagline says I write dark and introspective fiction. This means that in my stories, bad things happen to bad people, but sometimes good people too. They are tales about scary things that can’t ever happen, and some that might. It also means that you feel something when you read them. That’s one facet of who I am and what I do, the biggest maybe. The fact is that at the core, I am a creator.
While it’s true I build stories, I also build real things too. Sometimes that means painting sad little blanket ghosts, but mostly I enjoy resurrecting and repurposing, making useful things from what might otherwise be waste. The most appropriate example of this is Frank the Book Bike.
Frank started life as a scrap bike frame and a stack of old palettes, now he helps us roam the countryside selling books, art, and weird greeting cards.
When I say us, I mean Pencil on Paper. PoP started as a way for me to publish my own books, but after I pulled in my best friend Kaleigh to help steer the creative freight train, we expanded the ever-evolving offerings to include original art, repurposed goods, and one of a kind greeting cards.
So, that’s me in a misshapen nutshell. In case you haven’t seen them already, my short story collection and the first three books in my zombie outbreak series are available as eBooks on Amazon and through Kindle Unlimited. Links to these can be found under “Books” in the menu above. The limited-edition paperbacks, as well as our complete line of art and oddities, can be found on the Pencil on Paper webstore.
Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter below. When you do, you’ll be sent a link to download an electronic version of Into the Storm, the first book in The Storm series, for free! You will only receive emails when new short stories are posted, including subscriber-only content, and updates on my writing journey, which at the moment means my new paranormal series, Beyond the Divide. Please reach out anytime if you have any questions at all, or have any feedback you would like to share. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my unique forms of madness with you.
I hope you are well. Take care.
