My debut novel The Swansong Conspiracy is now available worldwide where books are sold. I am incredibly proud and thankful.
Weirdness is in their blood.
After a near cataclysmic worldwide event shook the foundations of society and unleashed numerous supernatural hazards onto the Earth, twins Quincy and Lilly just want to lead their lives as normally as possible. However, this proves to be quite difficult. The twins are the heirs of legendary horror writer and occultist W.A. Swansong, who has been declared a prophet now that many of his gruesome creations appear to really exist.
When a mysterious inheritance falls into the twins’ hands, a strange and violent secret organization becomes hell-bent on finding them. Quincy and Lilly are forced to flee their hometown of New Orleans, leading them on a wild, supernatural chase throughout the southern United States. With only a handful of allies and a trapped Fire Vampire named Tim, the twins uncover a great mystery tied to their inheritance, the source of all pandemonium, and even the true origins of mankind.
First there was just one, but now the critically acclaimed ‘Box Under the Bed’ series reaches it’s third iteration with ‘Nightmareland’!
Amongst a myriad of terrifying stories from a group of amazingly talented authors; Nightmareland contains two new stories by me. ‘Serpent Eve’ and ‘The Barghest O’ Litlington’ were inspired by the gothic horror masters of old and I’m immensely proud of both.

I love the campy horror and mystery when writing The Eldritch Twins (and now book 2, The Nearly Departed). But, when I was approached to contribute a story or two to a new horror anthology, I knew I had to change things up. Having just finished the staggering 19th- and early 20th-century horror and ghost story anthology “The Moons at your Door” compiled by David Tibet, I was inspired to write some ghastly gothic horror that’ll get turn-of-the-century connoisseurs blood flowing with anticipation.
A brand new short story titled “Serpent Eve” and a three part sonnet sequence titled “The Barghest O’ Litlington” will be a part of the fantastic anthology Nightmareland compiled and edited by Dan Alatorre. The amount of talent featured in this anthology is staggering and I can’t wait to announce the release. Coming soon!
Tomorrow is going to be a great day for booklovers! My friend and co-author of Dark Visions and another upcoming anthology has her debut novel The Weaver releasing through Parliament House tomorrow on August 20th. For everyone that loves magic, mysticism and the quiet shores of New England, you need this book!
Most writers choose the endings to their stories . . . most writers are not Weavers.
Laney Holden is a freshman at Madison College whose life goes from normal to paranormal in a matter of seconds. When the antagonist in the book she’s writing shoves her down the stairs at the subway station, she learns she is a Weaver. Weavers bridge the narrow gap between fantasy and reality, bringing their words to life.
Laney soon meets William whom she also suspects is a character from her book—one she’s had a mad crush on since her pen hit the paper. But he’s in danger as her antagonist reveals a whole different ending planned for Laney’s book that involves killing William. Laney must use her writing to save the people closest to her by weaving the most difficult words she will ever write.
THE WEAVER is the first installment of The Weaver trilogy. It is an NA paranormal romance set in a small town on the north shore of Boston. It will leave you wanting more.

Have you ever felt like things were just a little off? That’s just how the characters in Nick Vossen’s The Fissures Between Worlds: Tales Beyond Time and Space feel on a regular basis. Fissures Between Worlds takes the reader to worlds beyond the veil of time and space where the unlikely, the improbable, even the impossible can and does occur. When the veil is breached, people get stuck in endless time loops, and creatures which can’t possibly exist wreak havoc within our own realities. Nick Vossen’s unique styles of storytelling take readers on a journey which will make you ponder the possibilities. A short fiction collection which is anything but typical. I give Fissures Between Worlds five quills.

I am so honoured to be in this spooky anthology. With contributions from authors who nail the spook genre, this anthology will have you jumping at every shadow. Breath a sigh of relief they are only shadows; or are they?
The following is an excerpt from my tale “Devil’s Hollow.” A cautionary tale, warning those who let curiosity lead them into dark places.
Benji had gone quiet with fright, but I held his hand and walked back the way we’d come but stopped. It was black as tar without a flashflight.
There was a sudden loud noise that made me jump and Benji wet himself.
“You stupid idiot,” Doug shouted at his brother.
Lord, when they gave out brains Bart must’ve been absent that day.
He’d touched one skeleton and the damn head rolled onto the floor making an almighty racket.
