Just a reminder for those seeking Christmas gifts at the last minute:  I now have three works available on Amazon Kindle.

My novelette, Click, has received a five star rating from one reader, who stated, “Author has a wonderful ability to develop the characters using few words. Great foreshadowing to build suspense. And then a really outstanding twist at the end that left me smiling.”  In Click, A Texas policeman, on a secluded island while recovering from the guilt of shooting an unarmed man, suddenly finds himself under attack by unknown assailants and caught up unknowingly in a web of intrigue.

Several of the stories contained in my two short story collections have garnered high praise from readers.

In my first collection of previously published and unpublished short stories,  A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror, I offer a look into the minds of people who perpetrate horrors, from acts of stupidity with unintended results to cold-hearted revenge to pure enjoyment to complete indifference. Settings range from 17th-century France in the heart of the werewolf trials to the Old West to the present and on to alien worlds in the distant future.

In The Scent and Other Stories, another collection of short stories, I explore the dark, sometimes violent, sometimes twisted, sometimes touching side of love, the side kept not only from public view, but sometimes from our mates. Set in the modern era, these stories range in setting from forbidden interracial love in the hills of 1970’s Kentucky to a mother’s confession in present-day New Mexico to the callous manipulation of a lover in Texas

Both The Scent and Other Stories and Click are also available in paperback.  A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror will be in paperback before the week is out.

“Through the Gaps” has published my short story “Decision”.

“Through the Gaps” ( has published my short story “Decision” about love and racism in the mountains of 1970’s eastern Kentucky.  Many sincere thanks to the “Through the Gaps” staff for re-printing this, one of my favorite and most poignant stories.  I love the illustration they chose, which has considerable emotional impact once you have read the story.

This story is definitely literary drama, not horror, but it is one of the first stories I wrote when I started writing and it demonstrates some of my basic principles in writing.

The “Through the Gaps” staff seem to have a real knack for picking illustrations.  They did a superb job in picking the illustration for my story “Sudan”, which was published last week and, like the illustration for “Decision”, is particularly poignant once you have read the story.
