APRIL 30, 2018: We welcome our newest author to the Evolved Publishing Team.
As a child of Kentucky and Texas, bluegrass and bluebonnets share equal time in my blood, fueling a need for adventure and exploration, and a keen desire to see what is out there.
This is my third evolution as a writer, starting as a young boy inventing adventures for my toys and friends. In school, I wrote to fulfill assignments and map out the world. Now, I write for the same reason I read: I want to know what happens next.
Stories can make us laugh or smile, scream or cry, sometimes at the same time. In the best stories, we let the pages tell us what we need to see inside ourselves.
My fiction ranges from horror to historical, and I placed in a short story contest when one of my first stories found a home in Evolution: Vol 1, published by Evolved Publishing. Outside of the Lone Star state, I won the Arkansas Writer’s Conference Special Award (2009) and the Creme De La Creme Award (2014) from the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Inc. for best overall story.
Watch for Fluid Shock, the second book in “The Holocaust Engine,” the horror/dystopian/post-apocalyptic series co-authored with David Rike, to release in late 2020 or early 2021.
A team of investigators and military operators join the survivors in a race to stop the spread of an otherworldly plague.
After one year of quarantine, the Lower Florida Keys have descended into madness. The last of the local officials cling to power, hording supplies and using sheer brutality to force submission. When a second strain of disease burns its way through the enclaves of survivors, the military targets the islands for purge… until a cryptic message from inside the cordon halts the bombing. Now, a broken former detective and a group of military operators race to unravel the claim that the disease is already out, weaponized, and ready to bring the world to its knees.
Watch for Unda Sanguis: The Flood, the third book in “The Holocaust Engine,” the horror/dystopian/post-apocalyptic series co-authored with David Rike, to release in late 2021.
Chaos descends inside the quarantine zone as a hurricane threatens to finish what the disease started.
With an army of infected pouring across Key West, the last bands of survivors are caught between fighting monsters, each other, and a hurricane that is churning toward the island. The cordon around the island fails, leaving everyone to chose between fight, flight, flood, and faith. Those who stay will face the disease and the demonic force it has released. With saltwater and blood soaking the island, these strike teams make their last ditch effort to challenge this threat to humanity… and drown it.
