YOU CAN READ IT IN                  .  




Environmental and economic turmoil forces the United States to consolidate its borders, leaving nearly 2/3 of the country abandoned.


One year after moving from Colorado to New Mexico to comply with the Sunbelt Relocation Act, Leo Kline gets the itch to explore abandoned America and convinces his wife, Nova, to join him.


After a surreal day walking the deserted downtown Denver streets and skiing the untracked Rocky Mountains without seeing another soul, the Kline’s come face to face with the unsettling truth: abandoned America isn’t abandoned after all. 


Leo learns that those left roaming the empty cities and towns of America are extremely dangerous and that he may hold the key to dismantling their sinister agenda.

TAKE MY $2.99—I'M IN!

We all have ways of dealing with existential dread. Mine is writing stories.

(and now back to your regularly scheduled programming)

What I'm working on:

➺ Getting ready to publish my debut novel, a dystopian thriller called THE X

➺ A three (or four) part horror series exploring the dark side of immortality called THE JESUS OUIJA BOARD

➺ Second draft of a horror-comedy novel tentatively called CHORT. It's like a mix of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Hereditary (now that wasn't an ambitious claim at all)
