~~~MEET THE AUTHOR~~~
After working several menial jobs through the years that followed, my thoughts again began to turn toward writing books. Inspired by my favorite author, Stephen King, I took an online creative writing course and slowly began to develop my skills. In late 2010 I was given a violent shove, both by the job market (which was horrible to say the least, and still is) and by the persistent encouragement of close friends, to pick up my pen and begin writing again.
In early 2012, I gave birth (that's almost what it felt like) to my very first published book, Desolace. Finally having a completed novel in my hand was the best feeling in the world for me, giving me a sense of accomplishment I had waited a lifetime for. Since then it has gotten easier for me with each book I have published. Since the initial release of Desolace, I have published nine more novels as well as an omnibus edition ebook of the entire Desolace series. My next book, a collection of short stories called Fractured Reflections, is scheduled for release in February 2017.
Check out these great teasers from a few of the short stories!

Anthony sat down in his chair and picked up the page sitting on top of the pile, slowly perusing the typed words to refresh his memory. One eyebrow rose curiously as he studied the unfamiliar text, which he had no recollection of writing. After reading the script, he picked up another page, then another, and another. Each one was brimming with words; none were things he remembered.
"July 23, 2017. My name is Benjamin Walker." He clicked his tape recorder off for a moment as he considered what to say next. Pushing a button, the little red light came back on. "I am in Misty Hollows, Ohio, investigating the serial killer known as The Headhunter. His killing spree, which was short-lived for a killer of this sort, only lasted for a couple of months." Ben paused briefly, allowing the tape to continue rolling. "I am sitting in the driveway of the suspected killer waiting for the realtor to show up with the keys to the house. I sincerely hope that staying here will provide me with some insight on what makes a serial killer tick." Turning the recorder off again he set it on the passenger seat.
