My novel Ocean Grave hits audiobook at last, available wherever audiobooks are sold! This one’s read by Sean Duregger, and he does a terrific job bringing one of my biggest books, in terms of scope and scale, to life.
I’m happy to say I’ll be contributing a story in next year’s Beyond the Book of Eibon, a forthcoming literary tribute to the films of Lucio Fulci. You’ll be able to snag the book in February or March next year, but you can back the … Continue readingLucio Fulci literary tribute coming in 2021
This past weekend I was on a virtual panel with a whole bunch of incredible authors talking about Steven Spielberg’s Jaws on its 45th anniversary.
