Waaay back in June, I posted my most recent update, letting my readers know about the availability of Beginning, the third and final volume in my zombie trilogy The Dying of the Light. In my opinion, it’s my best work to date and has been well-received by readers of the first two. Plus my mom. Which is […]

“Beginning” Finished, Available Now Everywhere The third and final book in my zombie apocalypse series, The Dying of the Light: Beginning, is out! Get it here: He awoke and, for the first time in almost twenty-five years, remembered who he was… Twenty years after Z-Day, a handful of survivors are left in massive underground bunkers.

Insults are something we’ve all experienced at one point or another, and usually they’re not very pleasant. But in the movies, it’s a completely different story, and as a writer, I find a well-written insult extremely useful. As useful as threats, I’d say.
