A child of the movies, I was always consumed by fantastic stories told by others and translated into adventures to be retold by me through the action figure medium. As I grew older, I put the action figures away and moved into the realm of role playing. Though I never outgrew role playing, I certainly don't have the time for it anymore. Since I was eleven years old, I've been pouring almost every ounce of creative energy I have into writing.
I graduated college in 1993 with a degree in computer science. I tried my hand at programming for a couple of years and found it pretty unsatisfying. I later became a partner at a comic book store, where I spent several years. Though it wasn't a financial success, the experience I gained from running the store and the people that I met (many of whom I'm still in touch with today) was priceless. After leaving the store, I settled into a career of teaching. I still teach at a public high school in New York. Ironically, I've picked up computer programming again, which is what I mostly teach.
I've been writing the whole time.
I released my first book electronically in 2010. Forty Leap was a turning point for me in both style and story building. The Book of Revelations, which was written earlier but released later, was sort of a midway point between the writer I was and the writer I've become. I experimented with a very odd style and a story that employed diverse characters and controversial situations.
In September 2010, I released the first installment of Zombies! Zombies! has been a tremendous success for me that came very close to being made into a television series. Since Zombies!, I have written a five part miniseries called Castes and have been working on developing tabletops games, the first of which, ApocalypZe, was published in early 2014. A couple of free stories about some of the characters in ApocalypZe have been released. I have written others and am working on putting them together into a novel.

Really wonderful writing, and I don't say that often. Coming up with the difference in scents was really fun. Great idea! Why is this series not published as a book? I've read many published in paper not nearly this good.

Oh my god, when will part 7 be published, I really cannot wait - this series is so amazing!
Since I started this series I became a "IT Zombies junkie"! This is one of the best book series I read in the past month and also one - if not the best - of the best Zombie stories I ever read!
I really appreciate the stories, and couldn't stop reading, until I was forced to by ending part 6....

I bought part 6 and absolutely could not stop reading until I was finished! I knew I had to immediately log in and write a review. As I read each new part of this series, I've been waiting or maybe expecting the author to become rushed in the writing, or possibly complacent and for the plot to fall flat, but let me tell you, as time goes on, this story just gets better and better! I'm not kidding, I truly believe that if this author just kept going with these installments and made hundreds of them, I would read every single one! I am in awe of how each character, each situation, every single action packed, horrifying, loving, sad, crazy, or just plain 'wow' moment that is described in this story leaves me breathless! I am literally waiting on the edge of my seat for the next part of this story! It can't come soon enough!!!
