I'm a Brooklyn-based author of horror, fantasy, mystery, suspense and erotica. My stories have appeared in Cemetery Dance, City Slab, The Best American Erotica 2007, Playboy, X: The Erotic Treasury, Shivers V and numerous other places. My first book, a collection of previously published stories called Walk in Shadows, is now out of print but can probably be found with a little online digging. My second, the Bram Stoker Award-nominated chapbook General Slocum's Gold, is available from Burning Effigy Press. My third, the novella Chasing the Dragon, is from ChiZine Publications. My chapter on plotting the short horror story can be found in the Writers Digest Book On Writing Horror. I have also served on the Board of Trustees for the Horror Writers Association.
