Consulting

I’m the bestselling, award-winning author of 30+ published short stories, eight novels, and one novella. My wife Desirée Lee, and myself write, and create the hit mature audience werewolf horror webcomic “MoonWraith”. I’ve also done other comic book work, and branched out into screenplays.

Also, I’m Wiccan, and have made a study and practice of magick. Years of my life have also been devoted to the study of, and dealing with, various aspects of the supernatural, and cryptozoology.

I’d be willing and able to work in the capacity of a consultant in any of the above topics, or fields. That goes for research projects, books, or practical applications. Please just contact me via my website. I have no doubt that we can work out a fair fee for my time and energies. I look forward to hearing from you!

Stolen Library Books

Library

As a bestselling, award-winning writer, I do a lot of research on various topics. As a paranormal author, a lot of the topics I find myself looking into are things that most people tend to brush aside as pure fiction and fantasy. Do an on-line search for any given supernatural subject, and you’re more apt to find hundreds, if not thousands, of links to sites pertaining to works of fiction, comic books, television programs, and movies than you are to find anything serious on the topic at hand. Likewise, most libraries I’ve ever been in have a very limited selection devoted to mythology, legends, the paranormal, and magick.

So, I’m more upset than the average person probably is over this brief article. It’s hard enough to find such material available in libraries without people stealing it. Everyone, please, do not do this! Return your library books so that others can make use of that resource, too. If you want a copy of a given title so badly, then buy one. By stealing it, you hurt everyone. If it’s an out of print book, look on-line. Odds are you’ll find a copy for sale somewhere. Spend the money. Buy it legally. We’ll all be better off.

Blessed Samhain!

Blue Pentagram

Blessed Samhain to all of my fans, and readers! Today is my favorite day of the year. It’s Desirée Lee‘s favorite day, too. It’s known to most people as Halloween. We usually refer to it by it’s traditional name of Samhain.

For those of you not familiar with the true meaning of the day, please read on. Today has nothing to do with horror, or monsters. Samhain (pronounced Sow-in) was originally a festival celebrating the harvest time, and marking the beginning of the dark half of the year. It’s also a time when the veil between our world, and the spirit world is very thin. This thinning of the veil makes it easier to communicate with otherworldly beings, and makes it easier for those beings to visit our world. It’s a time of magick and mysticism, fun and revelry.

Yes, I know I spelled “magick” above with a “k” at the end. “Magic” is smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand illusion. It’s stage craft. “Magick” is the real thing. It’s the manipulation of energy to obtain a goal.

Again, I wish all of my fans and readers a very happy, safe, and Blessed Samhain – regardless of how you celebrate today, and even if you don’t!

Artist Call

Desiree Lee and I are still looking for artists, or art teams, for two comic book projects. One of those projects, “Warder”, is high fantasy. The other is titled “Ravenesque”, and is modern-day urban fantasy. Please see just below for information regarding “Warder”.

Payment terms for “Ravenesque” would be the same.

Both series feature female protagonists. The following shouldn’t need to be stated, it ought to be pure common sense, but repeated occurrences of the problem force me to say it: Anyone even remotely interested in doing artwork duties for either “Warder” or “Ravenesque” needs to be very proficient at, and fully comfortable with, drawing females. Not to be blunt, but, if you’re not very proficient at, and fully comfortable with, drawing females, please do not waste your time, or ours, by by submitting work to us for either of these projects.

Artists interested in submitting for either series need to also be proficient and comfortable drawing an array of fantasy creatures – dwarfs, faeries, dragons, trolls, elves, gnomes, leprechauns, brownies, spirit beings, etc.

Please use the submission e-mail address listed above on the “Warder” ad flier for “Ravenesque”, too.

We look forward to reviewing the submissions!
