“Where the Hell did You Come Up with that?”

—is a question I get from a lot of my friends, usually right after some absurd new story idea comes tumbling out of my mouth.

I have a long love, and respect for the transportive power of words. For the past two years, I’ve used them over on my sister publication — Cole's Climb — to bring my readers along with me to mountaintop trails, and campsite firesides.

Thing is — all that time in the outdoors has made for excellent opportunities to mull over a different kind of story: the what ifs, doubts, and the creeping feeling that something lurks just beyond the beam of your flashlight.

This space is a kind of digital campfire where I can share those works of fiction with you.

My Kind of Story

Here, you can expect stories that explore the boundaries of our humanity, survival, and compassion. I enjoy writing speculative fiction and thrillers.
