A special thanks to all those who came to purchase my book and stayed for a Q & A session about my stories, and my future writing endeavors. Also, to my Grandson, Chase and his Dad, Todd who designed and printed my display.

Jodie, Kelly K, and Kelly M and I had an incredible time at this years Spooky Empire, and I'd like to thank everybody who stopped by our table. To those who won a book and T-shirt in our hourly drawings, I hope you enjoy my book. And to those who purchased their copy of my book, I think you'll thoroughly enjoy reading my mind! 

We had a blast!!!

Being on a panel with my peers was a humbling experience, and to the potential authors who asked me for my advice in writing and how to cope with writers block, never give up and when your stories are complete, it's always well worth the struggle.

Good Luck!


Had another incredible time at Spooky Empire Convention this year. here are a few pics from the weekend. Met some awesome people who are authors, horror comic illustrators, podcasts, and in film
