Like most authors, I've kicked around a bit. In fact, I've been an actor, a singer, an Emmy-nominated songwriter, a recording artist in Europe, a music publisher, a VP of Carolco Pictures and worked as a free-lance Music Supervisor on films such as 'Basic Instinct' and 'Universal Soldier.' I'm currently a counselor in private practice. If memory serves, I sold my first story in 1999. I've been busy ever since. My five Mick Callahan mystery novels MEMORIAL DAY, EYE OF THE BURNING MAN, ONE OF THE WICKED, RUNNING COLD, and THE DEVIL IN THE CLOCK are all available on Kindle or in paperback. Check out my dark thriller THE PRESSURE OF DARKNESS, which has an introduction by Stoker-winner Joe McKinney, and the weird zombie novella PAIN, which features an introduction by NY Times Bestseller Jonathan Maberry. Also the novellas BITERS and ZERO AT THE BONE, both released by Journalstone. I have published dozens of short stories and written a number of screenplays, including the Lionsgate horror movie and novel DEAD AND GONE. My werewolf thriller CLAN was released on Kindle as well as in paperback. My first comic horror/thriller, a zombie opus entitled THE HUNGRY (co-written with Steven W. Booth) was quite a hit, and spawned five sequels, THE HUNGRY 2: THE WRATH OF GOD, THE HUNGRY 3: AT THE END OF THE WORLD, THE HUNGRY 4: RISE OF THE TRIAD, THE HUNGRY 5: ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE and THE HUNGRY SIX: THE RULE OF THREE. There's also a pulp novella written for an exciting Kindle/paperback series published by Amazon's own 47North. My entry was entitled THE DEAD MAN: KILL THEM ALL! If you enjoy fast-paced pulp fiction, don't miss my mystery/thriller ALL THE DEVILS, also co-written with Steven W. Booth. It features a new hero named Spider Walsh, and may be the first in a series. I'm quite proud of it. For the career curious, I've twice been nominated for the Stoker Award by the Horror Writer's Association, once for my collection A HOST OF SHADOWS, and for short fiction with NIGHT NURSE. I've won the Tombstone and the Black Quill once each, and my short story FIFTY MINUTES, co-written with Joe Donnelly, was chosen for inclusion in the prestigious anthology Best American Mysteries of 2011. I'm on the list of Major Horror Authors of the Twenty-First Century in Readers' Advisory Guide to Horror, 2nd Edition, from the American Library Association. You can find me on Facebook or Twitter. I'd love to hear from you.
