I am a writer, ghostwriter, developmental editor & graphic artist. I sold my first story in 1973. I’ve had fiction in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, Fantastic, Amazing Stories, and online at Electric Spec, Mystery Weekly, Every Day Fiction and Flash Fiction Online, et al. My first book was, oddly enough, a children's book, DINOSAUR DRESS UP published by William Morrow in 1992. Since then, I have published a number of other books, mostly novels, mostly science fiction, fantasy, and horror, with the occasional work of mainstream fiction as well as YA and MG. I have also ghostwritten more than a dozen works of science fiction and fantasy, as well as memoirs and cozy mysteries. I live in North Carolina with my wife and occasional collaborator, novelist Grace Marcus.
