He has lived in Ymir, Wells, Quesnel, Prince George, Quesnel, North Vancouver, Quesnel, Burnaby, North Delta, and Quesnel. I live with my wife Jo and a blue-eyed, white cat named Mister. I mostly build houses and shops to earn a living but I'm also a writer, poet, artist, photographer, role playing game designer and independent e-book publisher. I’ve written dozens of stories, including fantasy, horror, sword & sorcery, mystery, humor, erotica, and science fiction, frequently combining genres. Forty have been published in small press magazines and e-zines, from the 200-word "The Hole" in Ascent Aspirations, to the 10,000-word novelette "Levels" in Buzzy Mag, published in May, 2012. Some of them are available now as ebooks at Smashwords.

Review by: R. McCullough on April 27, 2016 :
I haven't written near as many books as you and I just read Under the Shade Tree.
Interesting take on a ghost story and especially the use of a Shade.
About to leave a review when I saw your e address (will still leave a review)
I liked the story and I wondered why did you left her wounds clearly evident as a Shade….
In my book I also had ghosts assisting people to find their killers.
Your story has given me an idea to have, in the sequel I'm writing - (or maybe a short story spinoff?), an IMS Mage that picks up a 'sidekick' ghost that helps him. If I do, would you mind if I credit you with giving me the idea due to your Under the Shade Tree story?
