I write in a wide range of genres including historical fiction, pulp adventure, vintage weird, steampunk, modern fantasy, science fiction (often with historical allusions), conspiracy, mystery, suspense and horror. At the moment, I have received the most attention for my steampunk works, although they are only one portion of my writing portfolio.

My novels include Blood In The Skies, the first book in The Hellfire Chronicles series, and The Ouroboros Cycle: A Monster’s Coming Of Age Story.

 Presently, my adventure serials “An Unfortunate Engagement” and “The Mask of Tezcatlipoca” are appearing in Steampunk Tales.  My short story “In The Footsteps of Giants” appears in the Footprints anthology from Hadley Rille Books and my “The Strange Case of Mr. Salad Monday” has been reprinted in Steampunk Reloaded, edited by Jeff and Ann VanderMeer (it originally appeared on Tor.com).  For a full list of my written work, please visit my Bibliography page.
