THE BUCKTAIL BROTHERS SERIES e-book written by David Rimer and me was just released by BookBaby, which has the largest distribution network available online.  Our Civil War adventure is now for sale at,, the iBookstore, Sony, Kobo, Baker & Taylor, Copia, Gardner's, and eBookPie.  Give THE BUCKTAIL BROTHERS SERIES a try and follow the entire, bloody history of the 149th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, also known as "the New Bucktails."  The unit lost 80% of its men in two hours at the first day's battle at Gettysburg.  It got worse from there for the survivors!

Recently, my writing became so diverse that it was necessary to overhaul  This website will now focus exclusively on my historical fiction collaborations with David Rimer and information about my family and writing career.  My horror writing has been moved to a new home,, where you can delve into all things Gothic and macabre.  I've also created another website to publicize the new Viking series on which I'm collaborating with South African Author, Fiona Ingram, and Pennsylvania artist, David Cox.  To learn more about the Dane Wulfdin novels, please visit  If you enjoy my Bucktail and French and Indian War stuff, stay right here!  But have your musket cocked and ready, for the Rebs and Delawares are ready to spill out of the woods with ear-piercing shrieks and sharpened bayonets and axes.
Best wishes,
