Read my new story and find out. What can you expect … Continue reading Get My New Short Story for Free!
The name of my new novel is currently Caged Animals. But naming a novel is a tricky business. I’ve come up with several other names over the past 2 years that I loved at first and then for one reason or another I fell out of love with them. However, I still like them all at least a little which makes it hard to know which one is the best. That’s where you come in. I would enjoy hearing your thoughts on which name(s) you like. Which one grabs you and makes you want to know what the book is … Continue reading Help Me Name My New Book!

Watch my blog or follow me on Facebook for more information. COMING SOON! Continue reading My Next Book – SNEAK PEAK
Glazed Man & Rat Girl is riding high at the top of the list, HILARIOUS KID’S BOOKS on Goodreads. This is a monumentous achievement for the not-so-bright but good hearted Glazed Man and his slightly crazy but fearless friend Rat Girl. Full disclosure, they won the number one spot with only four votes, but hey, that’s two better than the second place book. OK, so it’s not one of the more popular lists on Goodreads, that’s beside the point. The point is that they are number one and we’re going to celebrate as long as they are on top. Speaking … Continue reading Glazed Man Voted #1
The Laundry Monster is one of the villains in my first book, Glazed Man & Rat Girl. It’s a rather unusual villain in that it’s not actually a person. It’s made up of Johnny Crumb’s old stinky laundry. It comes to life when Johnny tosses his radioactive socks on top of the pile. The Laundry Monster has never gotten as much press as the main villain, RoboCreep, but truth be told, I’ve always enjoyed it’s scenes in the book more than RoboCreep’s. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s just how my warped brain works. Or, maybe it’s because it reminds … Continue reading The Laundry Monster and Plop

Below is a piece of concept art I drew recently, depicting a scene from the novel that I am currently working on. The working title is Pet Planet, but I’m pretty sure that will be changed before publication. This new project is a complete change of direction for me. It’s a young adult novel that has nothing to do with Glazed Man or Rat Girl. I’m not ready to give any real details yet, as I’m still writing the rough draft. I don’t plan to do illustrations for this one, although I’m considering doing one or two. The illustration below … Continue reading Concept Art
