Upon realizing that his childhood dream of writing comics wasn't going anywhere without collaborators, he decided to strike out on his own and turn his original graphic novel idea into an actual novel, THE UNRAVELING: DAMAGED INCORPORATED BOOK ONE, with more books in that series on the way. This was shortly followed by a collection of short stories, COFFEE, SEX & CREATION, centering on characters and situations in the fictional town of Flannery, WV. The bulk of these stories were part of his Master's creative thesis that have been tinkered with and reworked. New for this collection were an additional five 100 word stories. Whereas THE UNRAVELING was straight horror/sci-fi, COFFEE, SEX & CREATION has a little bit of everything.
In 2013 he contributed the 1989 chapter in THE AMERICAN COMIC BOOK CHRONICLES: THE 1980S, and began publishing his Comics Bulletin column MONDO MARVEL, which looks at the formation of the Marvel Superhero Universe issue-by-issue, in ebook format. Then he contributed two chapters to DAYTRIPPER: A LIFE EXAMINED, a collection of critical essays digging into the acclaimed graphic novel, Daytripper, before launching PDI Press with the release of MARVEL AT THE MOVIES: 1977 - 1989, MARVEL AT THE MOVIES: FROM IRON MAN TO ULTRON, and SPOILER ALERT: HANNIBAL SEASON ONE - AN UNAUTHORIZED CRITICAL GUIDE.
In 2017 he organized, edited, and contributed a short story to Psycho Drive-In Presents NOIRLATHOTEP: TALES OF LOVECRAFTIAN CRIME and then in January 2018 organized, edited, and contributed a short story to Psycho Drive-In Presents AMERICAN CARNAGE: TALES OF TRUMPIAN DYSTOPIA. As 2018 drew to a close he organized, edited, and contributed a story to Psycho Drive-In Presents NOIRLATHOTEP 2: MORE TALES OF LOVECRAFTIAN CRIME.
He currently lives and works in West Virginia, along with Dr. Girlfriend and their five cats, reading, writing, and drinking the finest beers West Virginia will allow.
