Three of My Works Now Available on Kindle!

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In my first collection of previously published and unpublished short stories,  A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror, I offer a look into the minds of people who perpetrate horrors, from acts of stupidity with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.

Publication Announcement: “The Creature at the Foot of the Bed”

Farmington, New Mexico, March 20, 2015

Farmington, New Mexico, March 20, 2015

This week I received word that my short story “The Creature at the Foot of the Bed” will be published at Nightsandweekends.com at a date yet to be announced.  “The Creature at the Foot of the Bed” is a bit of light suspense/comedy about a man who awakes to a surprise in the middle of the night.

Death Calls the Tune

For a change of pace I thought that for tonight’s blog, I would simply post a few digital images I created from photos using Photoshop a few

Dancing through Hell

Dancing through Hell

years back  One is called “Death Calls the Tune”.  I made it from a photo I took of a fiddler at a Renaissance fair.   The second is called “Dancing Through Hell” and I took the photo on which it is based at the same fair.  If I ever get the time again, I may make some more.

The last is more suspense than horror, though I can imagine it could be the setting for something horrible going on inside the bar.  It is derived from a photo I took of a bar in Tokyo in 1995.  The woman is a silhouette of a statue into which I inserted a public doman photo of a woman’s face, reversed it, and then did some more Photoshop magic.

I am selling these on a few products you can find in the Little Shop of Horror, but I don’t mind if you use these downloaded from this site so long as I get credit for the original image, and, if you would be so kind, please tell me where you use it.   I just like to see what uses people put my works to and how they are received.
