Work for hire?

Next summer Desirée and I will be getting married. With the upcoming wedding costs, we could really use some additional money. To that end, if anyone knows of anyone needing a writer – magazines, comic book projects, producers looking for a screenwriter for a project, etc. – please put me in touch with them. I would be willing to take on ghostwriting jobs, too, and have experience writing copy for business websites.

Coming Soon…


Bog skulks are small, mysterious creatures with vicious teeth and claws. They turned up in Quagmire Fen some time ago. No one seems to know what they are or where they came from.


Spencer Foster is a young man who has lived his entire life in the poor backwater of Quagmire Fen. He despises the swamp, and wants only to leave and start a new life in the city with his girlfriend. But his callous drunkard of a father has other ideas.


Very soon, Spencer’s life is irrevocably changed. His destiny is now linked to the bog skulks and Quagmire Fen.


What are the bog skulks? Where did they come from? What is the connection between Spencer Foster and the odd beings he’s given so little thought to?
