If you're looking for books outside the mainstream, you've found them. Within these pages, you'll find a strange compendium of fiction, unbound by convention.


Because I can't contain my muse, I write across genres: thrillers, suspense, horror, mysteries, young adult, and children's literature.


So the tagline, "clever books for clever readers," defines me well. That's why I chose it for my micropress, Jumping Jackalope Press. I write stories for people who like to think and who aren't afraid to stretch their imaginations beyond traditional publishing limits.


Welcome to the weird.
