2020 is shaping up to be quite a year on the writing front. At the beginning of the year, my story "Designer Recall" appeared in the January 2020 issue of Terror Tract. It's a Mathesonesque piece about designer children and family dynamics.
Up next, my Lovecraftian novelete "The Doom That Came to Hidden Pines" appears in Soteira Press's anthology Horror U.S.A. - Texas: An Anthology of Horror From the Lone Star State, out now.
And more tales are forthcoming.
