1. Hi, how are you?

  2. I just released my first novel, THE X. It is a dystopian thriller that takes place in a version of America that is largely abandoned. It's now available on Amazon!

  3. For horror fans, I'm gearing up to release a collection of my very best cosmic horror stories including NoSleep favorites, The World Isn't Flat, But It Isn't Round Either and The Basement Sessions. The collection is called WHEN YOU DIE YOU SEE PURPLE and it should be available this summer.

  4. I have Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, a newsletter, and existential dread.

  5. Why is there a tiger on the bottom of your website? Because it walks in place and it's cool.

America, abandoned.

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
