If I Should Die
Peyton Farley has settled into a new life in southwest Montana. Research and fact checking for a local newspaper is a perfectly safe job, or is it? One morning, Peyton awakens and finds a strange man in lace up work boots who is bleeding out on her kitchen floor. As Peyton calls 911 from her bedroom, someone is stealing the body.
Milk Carton People
Milk Carton People is a paranormal thriller about people who suddenly find themselves invisible, able to observe things but unable to participate. Do they go mad? Maybe they find others. It is quite possible that there is no point in being invisible.

three days, all power will go off, everywhere for a very long time. What
will you include in your author survival kit?
A “long time” is subjective, but assuming it will come back on
at some point before the riots start… A year’s supply of canned goods, flour,
sugar, and other staples so I don’t starve while I’m writing. A winter’s supply
of firewood because it’s really hard to type when you’re freezing. A generator
with lots and lots of gas, or a solar charge unit I can convert to pump water
for my horses and the house and fire up the laptop. A cow. A lantern with lots
of replacement gas bottles. A stack of notebooks and pens for when the laptop
inevitably becomes impossible to charge. Chocolate. Gotta have chocolate.
And books! Stacks of hard copy books to keep me rejuvenated when I’m not
writing. Continue reading
Where did the idea for the work you are promoting arise?
Ostensibly, The Closet of Discarded Dreams about a world of dreams; two precursors influenced its creation: 1. I inevitably skip reading dream scenes because they lack verisimilitude. Chingau–they often bore into stupid! And since I relish challenges [like a dare to write about an artificially intelligent carpet that takes over the world, using just ice cream; Rudy Rucker liked that one.], in this novel I planted chaos, contradiction and irreverence amidst humankind’s dreamy aspirations. 2. I first wrote this as a short story. Nebula Award winner Edward Bryant remarked that that contained “the germ of something in the vein of magic-realism author Jorge Luis Borges,” inspiring me to novelize it. Then the Northern Colo. Writers Workshop issued a challenge: write a novel in 30 days. It took me 45 for the working draft, 60k words, then years of rewrites. It’s 61.3, now. Hopefully, both Ed and Jorge won’t/wouldn’t be too disappointed in their vicarious-bastard offspring. Continue reading
