I write fiction: gothic, dark fantasy, magical realism, and sometimes literary fiction.

I was born into an Irish-Catholic family and grew up in a rural Central New York village …not far from the Canadian Border. Across the street from my house sat a mostly abandoned cemetery that held graves going back to the Civil War. Later I moved to Niagara County in Western New York.

I graduated from a Jesuit college and then from Syracuse University (thanks to a graduate assistantship) with an M.S. in Information Management. I worked for many years in the Information Technology field, as an Oracle DBA and mainframe systems admin, while raising a family. Reading and writing fiction was never far from mind.

Eventually I moved to a warmer climate in northeast Florida. Here I am now with two rescue pomeranians, and 3 cats.
