Story
Introduction
I'm a writer first and foremost -- I've published 4 off-the-wall vampire books and have penned over 80 short stories and novellas, mostly with a horror or rock 'n roll bent to them. At the moment, I've got a supernatural romance novel, a blood and guts horror novel, and an epic werewolf screenplay I'm shopping around ...

The mainstream publishers and agents don't really know what to make of my writing, so I do everything independently -- I kiss no ass and make no compromises.

It seems to be working ... I've got readers all around the world, even in places like South Africa and Australia, so I must be doing something right!

At the moment, I've got five books in circulation ...

* Hollywood Vampires: Unholy War *

* Hollywood Vampires: Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll *

* Love, Red Wine, & Magick *

* Pathway To Darkness *

* If You Want Blood... *

I also have short stories that appear in these fine anthologies...

* Robots Beyond *

* DARK: A Horror Anthology *

I currently work for Dynamic Response Marketing, a highly-successful global marketing company that works with businesses both great and small. It's an extremely satisfying and engaging job -- where I'm constantly learning and expanding my repertoire of skills. I consider myself very fortunate to have it, and it's not just because I work from home...

I'm very easy to get along with, if you don't mind a playfully cynical -- if sometimes brutal -- sense of humor and a tendency towards being scatterbrained. I've been told that I'm a cross between Beavis & Butt-Head and George Carlin ... that seems rather accurate, so I'll go with it.

The thing I hate the most is STUPIDITY ... if you're one of those folks whom evolution's laughed at, please go away. I worked retail for a decade -- that's where the violent sense of humor comes from.

I'm also quite comfortable with who I am and don't care less if I fit into anybody's view of the world ... I'm me. If you don't like it, fine. If you want to change me... uh, no.

I've written and published five books... does that count for something?
