October is here! Cooler days, beautiful colors, golden light... and horror! I'm thrilled to find my books on THREE of the Goodreads horror recommendation lists:WONDERLAND is included on the list of 2020's Top Horror Novels.
BABY TEETH is on The 40 Most Popular Horror Novels of the Last 5 Years list, and 48 Horror Recommendations by Terrifying Tropes (under the category "Humans Are the Biggest Monsters of All").
For those of us who write scary books we love that October gives readers an "excuse" to explore the horror genre... and maybe start reading scary books year 'round?

I had the pleasure today of waking up to a text from a local friend, congratulating me on the "beautiful page" in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I has no idea what she was talking about, and the article wasn't available online.
Fortunately I already had plans to leave the house today, so I picked up a couple copies of the paper while I was out. Even with the head's up, I wasn't quite prepared to see a FULL PAGE feature about WONDERLAND in the Weekend Magazine section of the paper.
As many readers have noticed, WONDERLAND is not BABY TEETH. This was the first deeply thoughtful professional review I've seen of WONDERLAND that also sought to explore themes, and juxtapose the family elements in my two books in an insightful way. It's an extremely rewarding thing as a writer when a person reads your book deeply - and even the article's title is a succinct summary of what I was trying to create:
Stage's new supernatural thriller is a provocative, philosophical page turner.
Thank you so much to Bill O'Driscoll and the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. (Read the review online here.)

They posted their review of WONDERLAND on the book's Pub Day. And last week I had the pleasure of chatting with them about WONDERLAND and being an author and being a reader - and that podcast went live today. You can listen to the main part of the INTERVIEW here - but there is also a second part that contains spoilers which you can access by donating to their Patreon.
