Hollow Grove Projects

I mostly write in the realm of mystery, historical fiction, and speculative fiction all mixed with some flavorings of dark/dry humor and horror. A good portion of my current projects are based in Hollow Grove, a fictional town in the United States populated by the supernatural ranging from vampires, zombies, to malicious spirits. Most of what happens there is documented by the journalists of The Hollow Times.
