Why did you become a writer?
The answer is not as simple as you might think. In grade school, we had an assignment to write a short
story. I took it a few steps further, wrote a much longer story than necessary, had a friend draw a

working on the project.
Later, I broke my arm and could not work as a Paramedic for months, so I spent my free time writing my first novel, “All Good Things.” It sat on the shelf for years before I decided to submit it for publication. It was

Will you read my manuscript or accept my ideas?
No. Thank you for asking. I don’t want to be accused of plagiarism. I have so many of my ideas that I
could never possibly write them all. I currently have three partially completed novels.
Can you give me any advice to help me with any writing?
I always tell people you will write if you want to write. I work two jobs and still find time to write. Just
because something works for me doesn’t mean it will work for you.
Do you write under any other names?
Yes, I do.
Have any of your books been made into movies?
Not yet. Fingers crossed.
I heard you were a Paramedic.
I’ve been a Paramedic since 1982, and as of 2023, still a Paramedic. That has given me enough material
to write over one hundred horror novels.
