Hannah Cane has taken the underground competitive thumb wrestling world by storm. Her intellect, improvisation, and unrelenting willpower plays a role in defeating her opponents with such efficiency that she’s been nicknamed “The Machine.” At the championship match, however, she’s accused of fraudulence. Is there any way an average sized woman could somehow cheat her way to victory against men twice her size? The answer will surprise you.
Are you always on the hunt for something new to read? I publish short stories every week or two in a variety of genres. Most of them are between five and ten pages long, and all of them are only ninety-nine cents on both the Nook and Kindle.
You never know what you’re going to get from me. One story will be an inspirational tear-jerker, the next will keep you up at night in fear. Some are hilarious, and others are so surreal that they don’t even make total sense to me. I love to read in all genres–my writing reflects this preference. I can’t be contained to one format, one style, or one genre.
If you’ll allow presumption on my part: I have certain authors that I adore. Unfortunately, they are not exactly prolific. They tend to write great novels … every three or four years. If you decide you like my writing, you can always look forward to something new within a few weeks.

Thanks so much for your time. I hope you’ll take joy in “discovering” me!
Mateo Sandoval has waited since 1946 to win Best Actor. At his age, it’s now or never. We all know crazy things can happen at the Oscars, but no one expected this! Click on the above links to read on your Kindle or Nook today! (Humor)
In this short story, a man at a comic book shop discovers a box full of his favorite childhood superhero toys. As he rummages through them, he meets a stranger with a real super power. Although brief, this tale will inspire you, tickle you, and remind you that real heroes surround us every minute of the day. (Humor/Inspirational/Family Life)
Cupid’s got a bit of a problem. He now appears old and decrepit, and he’s lost his will to spark romance. In fact, on St. Valentine’s Day, he’s content to merely mope on a park bench, sulking. What has brought Cupid to this lowly state, and is there any way Bernie and Patti can renew his vigor to unite lovers? (Humor/Holiday/Love)
I try to write and release a short story every few weeks through the Kindle and Nook publishing platforms. This helps me stay creative and satiate my need for playing in different genres. I’ll write horror one week, humor the next, and then inspirational after that. I love to read in all genres, so it makes sense that I enjoy writing in them, too.
Speaking of the Kindle, I’ve removed my 18-part Dr. Nekros serial from that platform and am currently shopping it around to literary agents as a collected epic edition. It’s a tough sell because it had already been published incrementally, but I know it will eventually find a home. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read about a ghost hunter, a haunted car, a demon … and an ex-wife?
Finally, I just finished the first draft of a novel. It’s got a long way to go, but it feels good to lay the foundation. As mentioned earlier, I hate being stifled by genre, and this novel is a perfect example of that. Once it’s ready for literary agents, I’m not sure how I’m going to present it. It’s about love, self-realization, moving on, and ghosts communicating through the ether.
Combine all of that with full-time teaching and two small children, and you’ve got a busy guy!
