Macabre has been defined as ghoulish, ghastly, chilling, gruesome, morbid, deathly, and more. I like to think my stories touch on a little of each of these aspects. I have always enjoyed scary stories even if I had to make them up myself. As a young adult, I discovered the world of Stephen King and was completely enthralled. I've been writing traditional mystery for some time but lately my stories have gotten darker and touched on more ethereal characters. I have completed one full novel of the macabre to date. I have another novel in the first draft stage and several short stories that are begging to be told.
A CLASH OF SKULLS Mysterious forces challenge the daughter of a cursed woman when she tries to right the grievous mistake that led to her mother's death.
My short story CLUE won an Honorable Mention from the Sleuthfest 2012 short story contest. It is the tale of a group of feral children at Florida's DisneyWorld and their own grisly version of the game.
THE DOOR is a short story about a man recovering from a horrific car accident whose life takes a terrifying turn for the worse.
