I am an artist and art teacher by training, but I have held an interest in fantasy and horror genres most of my life. The works of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft are the source of my inspiration. I am an avid table top role-player and a prolific game master; The Second Coming (and subsequent stories) is loosely based on an adventure I wrote for my gaming group. Family and friends have been encouraging me for years to submit my adventures or convert them into stories for publication. I finally took their advice.
I am an alumnus of Virginia Commonwealth University holding a Masters of Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Drawing and Painting as well as a Radford University alumnus with a Bachelors of Science of Art Education. I currently live in Newport News, Virginia and works for Newport News Public Schools as an art teacher.

In Search of Samuel
U.S. Marshal Arthur McMillian is given the task of finding and capturing Samuel Clark, one of the three escaped lunatics from Arkham Asylum. The other two escapees are Aaron Fulton and Pigeon from stories 1 & 2. This is the 3rd in a continuation of stories involving the Cult of the Lidless Eye, a branch cult of the Cult of Cthulhu.
Shortly after the incident with the cult, both Fulton and Pigeon began to hallucinate. Pigeon began to hear voices and Fulton started seeing octopus headed monsters. After an attempted suicide they were institutionalized in Virginia and then later placed into the care of the Arkham Asylum. The horrible drudgery of the past five years in the asylum is about to end as It Sees.
