As a #1 Best Selling horror author, wannabe cryptozoologist/monster hunter, and fan of general weirdness (both real and imagined), I’ve traveled over 100,000 miles seeking out everything from haunted asylums and UFO crash sites to creatures like Bigfoot and the Mothman. In a previous life, I worked as a hack in the independent movie industry, but I think my current career is much more exciting.
My ﬁrst books were offbeat travelogues, but recently my zombie apocalypse series, "Life of the Dead", has been a bestseller online and has grossed out readers all over the globe. I recently finished that series and penned a stand-alone horror novel called, “Within the Woods” which is loosely based on real events. Very loosely. I’m currently in various stages of completion for multiple new novels and series.
I’m a Jeeper who always tries to wave, a huge fan of dogs, and a passionate loner. I love road trips and dirt roads and I’m obsessed with Maine. How obsessed? I have the state outline tattooed on my arm. I enjoy a good conspiracy theory a little too much and I watch a ridiculous quantity of horror movies. My ultimate goal in life is to be killed by a monster thought by most to be imaginary. Sasquatch, werewolves, chupacabras... I’m not picky. If that fails, I’d enjoy a long and prosperous career as a full time writer. Which of those two scenarios is more likely is up to the readers to decide.
