Greasepaint & 45s

Grease Paint & 45s is now available for pre-order! I’m super-honoured to have my story, “Gut Punch” in this one because the author list is stacked. And that cover is a beaut. Check it out here!



Some Say the World Will End in Fire

2019, I like you so far.

One of my favourite short stories, previously published in print in 2015 in the excellent Pulp Literature got a new release online in the staff issue of Syntax & Salt Magazine. I’ve recently been reading submissions for this fantastic speculative fiction mag and am honoured to be included.

One-Shot Deal

My short story “One-Shot Deal” has been published online at Retreats from Oblivion: The Journal of Noircon. I love the black-and-white image chosen to accompany it. Check it out at the link below and don’t miss out on the many other noir gems there. The Retreats from Oblivion crew has amassed an awesome collection of authors, with more being added all the time. Don’t sleep on this site!
