The 2016 Montana Book Festival

I’m happy to announce I’ve been accepted into the 2016 Montana Book Festival. I’ll be promoting my second novel The Invasive, along with appearing on panels with top authors from across the country. It’s going to be a great event, taking place from September 20-25th in Missoula, Montana.

It would be great to see you all there. I’ll post my festival schedule as soon as I know it.



The Invasive giveaway

Hey everyone, we’re going to be giving away advance Ebook copies of The Invasive. All you have to do is join the community mailing list on the right column of this page to enter for your chance to win. The Invasive takes place in Montana, where strange new species begin to appear in a remote valley (some friendly, most not).

We also have hundreds of new members on our mailing list thanks to Miscon, so I want to send out a reminder that my debut novel, The Puller is up on Amazon.

The Puller has been published overseas as well, where it is known as Trapped.

Ruminations on Miscon

….it was amazing.

Dear friends, family, and fans, thank you for your incredible support at Miscon this weekend! “The Puller” had a record signing, and I was thrilled to be on ballroom panels with authors like Christopher Paolini and and Todd Lockwood. I cannot thank you all enough. Your support of my art is crucial.




Miscon 2016

Hey everyone, I’ll be appearing at Miscon from May 27th to the 30th in downtown Missoula.

I’ll be on a couple panels with great writers, and also participating in an autograph session and reading.

In other news, I have two novels coming out this year, so I’m working hard.

I’ve also been setting up an Instagram account, so swing by and say hello:
