The Monkey Is In.

So be prepared. Bring a banana.

I'm a writer of horror and dark fiction. I've been doing this since 1999 and believe me when I say, it's cheaper than therapy and safer for the world at large.

I still have a ton of links in a Word file but for now I thought I should at least add a couple that are near and dear to my heart. These are links to other sites that I think are cool, amusing, fantabulous, or whatever strikes my fancy at any particular moment. It'll start off small then eventually morph into something behemoth, sentient, and uncontrollable. You're welcome, Earth.


WRITING/CREATIVE/ARTISTIC

  • The Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers. I’ve been a part of this group, and one of it’s founders, since 2007. It’s a great gathering of awesome people, some of whom have become great friends. We’re working on a new site right now so I will give you both the old and the new addresses. Eventually I’ll delete the old one, when the time its right. Like when it needs to start wearing diapers and can’t feed itself.
  • Cinema Head Cheese. I used to review 2 movies a month at GLAHW when it had an active newsletter. And something caught the attention of the folks at Cinema Head Cheese. After messaging a few of them, and having CHC co-founder as a fellow GLAHW member, I’m guessing it’s because I’m as big a weirdo as they are. So they send me fantastic movies (and by fantastic I usually mean eye-bleeding horrible) and I write reviews. Sometimes I just review random flicks I come across on Netflix or wherever, too. I try to have fun with them, be as honest as possible (though I admit to holding back sometimes so as not to create too much butt-hurt), and help movie goers out there find the true treasures among the piles and piles of shit. I do link my personal reviews to my blog but you really do need to check out the CHC website for yourselves – it’s awesome!
  • Rare-Horror: they provide recommendations and reviews (some by little ol’ me) for all things horror, with a special fondness for 80s, independent, foreign, cult, and B-horror.
  • Slack Jaw Punks: found these guys through Twitter. They post about all sort of horror shit and I've been lucky enough to be brought into the fold. Check them out!

HORROR AWESOMENESS (writers, artists, films, etc.)

  • The Horror Honeys: a cool website dedicated to horror and organized/run by some bad-ass chicks. Check out their Facebook page, individual Twitter accounts, and their weekly podcast.

  • Son of Ghostman: a great independent film that’s got comedy, romance, and horror. Fun for the whole family!

  • Don England: Horror artist extraordinaire! (he's done a few covers for GLAHW, too) 

  • Steve Bejma: Classic horror artist who just can't ever stay at his table when working conventions.

  • David Hayes: Writer, actor, film producer, editor, teacher, and one of my favorite people.
