I'm very proud to report that my debut supernatural thriller Personal Effects: Dark Art was recently covered in The Washington Post by "@Play" columnist Mike Musgrove. Mike's article is a perfect introduction to the novel, and the "out of book" experience that accompanies it. Check it out here, and if you're feeling generous, leave a comment and share it on Facebook. If you're a first-time visitor to my site thanks to the story, welcome! Personal Effects: Dark Art has been praised as "a stellar first" by Publisher's Weekly (starred review), and called "cutting-edge experimental fiction ... that may herald the future of modern fiction" by Library Journal. Permit me to give you a tour of the Personal Effects-related content here at
