He is best known for finding homes for literally hundreds of short stories to small presses—publication in a plethora of science fiction, fantasy, and horror magazines during the 2000s era (what he affectionately labels the Millennial Pulps, before digital reading became the norm). He is the author of a handful of novellas (including A Child Weeps in Moscow). He has appeared in close to a hundred anthologies. He has been published with companies such as Damnation Books, Dark Owl Publishing, Left Hand Publishers, Wicked Shadow Press, and Steampunk Tales. He is the author of three novels and two out-of-print story collections: Death of the Common Writer (out of print), Fresh Blood (out of print), and a new collection featuring stories involving nightmarish characters and scenarios called The Nightmare Cycle is on the way (Dark Owl Publishing, 2023). He enjoys The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, collecting action figures, comic books, and gaming. He also enjoys drawing and exercise in his spare time.
