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.

This is where I will archive links for my reviews/articles so my main pages can be used for the current year and look all pretty and shit.

I've recently reviewed a book written by my friends, David Hayes and Kevin Moyers, called Keeping Molly. It's a nice spin on the zombie trope and had me alternately in tears and very very angry. I posted it over at Goodreads so why not take a peek?https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1034592358?book_show_action=false
