Active members of the Horror Writers Association, the Romance Writers of America PAN, and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, I have been working in the entertainment industry for the past ten years, as both a writer and editor. I now work full time as a freelancer, and volunteer as a mentor for new writers with the HWA and a juror for the annual Bram Stoker Awards.
My latest screenplay, THE KULT, a cop thriller, was purchased by Gharial Productions. Current projects include IN EXTREMIS, a supernatural western feature, and THE CODE, a cop and mob TV episodic drama series in development with Ice Fortress Productions, in conjunction with Krystek Productions and Synthetic Human.
I have written multiple published fiction novels, and several action screenplays. Three of my own novels have won national awards for best science fiction, horror, and fantasy, and nine books I have edited have also won literary awards.
Prior to working in publishing and media, I was the Editor in Chief for one of the largest newspapers in the state of Hawaii. I have prior experience in political and inspirational editing, illustration and book design, and worked as a GPS analyst for an environmental and archaeological recovery corporation for two years.
