I am always excited to announce my involvement in a new book, this time for my first of hopefully many publications with the UK-based KnightWatch Press. Masks is a new anthology compiled and edited by Dean M Drinkel anticipated to release later this year.

Inspired by the great Shirley Jackson, my story “Blood, Gingerbread and Life” is set in a secluded community where bizarre annual rituals keep death at bay. It explores the raw human need to control, holding domain over violence, nature, families, behavior, life, and death. What happens when that power is disrupted?

The table of contents features a group of diverse talents, including a handful of authors with whom I’ve had the honor of sharing other anthology titles.

Many Happy Returns – Kyle Rader
Trixie – Christopher L Beck
An Absent Host – F.A. Nosić
Variety Night – Russell Proctor
The Silencing Machine – Clockhouse Writers
After The End – Christine Morgan / Lucas Williams
The Face Collector – Stephanie Ellis
The Jar By The Door – Icy Sedgwick
Porcelain – James Everington
The Man Who Fed The Foxes – Phil Sloman
The House Of A Thousand Faces – Chris Stokes
Blood, Gingerbread and Life – David T Griffith
His Last Portrait – Adrian Cole

New book release: Don’t Look Back featuring my story: “The Elusive Pettibone”

Don't Look BackI’m excited to announce the publication of my latest story, “The Elusive Pettibone” as part of the anthology Don’t Look Back: Thirteen Terrifying Tales of Urban Folklore from Dark Moon Press.

“The Elusive Pettibone” is my origin story for the White Lady of Union Graveyard set in Easton, Connecticut. The legend of the White Lady is a popular case studied and written about by the renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. I first learned of the legend while attending one of their speaking events in Stamford, CT in the late 1990s. As there is no official record of who exactly the White Lady was, I found it a great opportunity to explore this subject that is both familiar to me and located close to home.

The story follows the tragic tale of the slightly off-balance Angela Pettibone on a life-long search for her lost son, Henry, whom no one, not even her husband, believed to have existed. The story includes a subtle nod to another of the Warrens’s mot famous cases, Annabelle, featuring a doll with red hair. By complete coincidence, Annabelle is now a major motion picture that was just released in theaters this past weekend.

It was a pleasure working with editor David Lingbloom during the writing process, which coincided with the first of two neck surgeries I have endured over the past ten months. I appreciate his patience in working with me as I pushed through a physically debilitating phase in my life.

Please consider supporting this creative endeavor and read some scary and entertaining stories just in time for the Halloween season.

Don’t Look Back is currently available in paperback and ebook.
