THE UNDERTAKERS: LAST SIEGE OF HAVEN is the fourth installment in the UNDERTAKERS Series.

While on an undercover mission, Will Ritter has made an unthinkable alliance—with a Corpse! But unlike the rest of his kind, Robert Dillin, the zombie prince, isn't evil. In fact, he wants to help. And Will needs all the help he can get because the Queen of the Dead has learned the location of Haven, the undertakers' secret headquarters, and she is planning a massive and deadly assault. With the last day of the Corpse War finally upon them, Will and his friends find themselves in a desperate race to close the Rift between worlds and forever kill the Corpses. But can they do it before Haven is overrun?

THE UNDERTAKERS: SECRET OF THE CORPSE EATER is the third installment in the UNDERTAKERS Series. 

The Corpses are up to something. U.S. Senator Lindsay Micha has been kidnapped and replaced with a "dead" ringer-the sister to Lilith Cavanaugh, the Queen of the Dead. Now, Will Ritter must go undercover in our nation's capitol to ferret out the truth and try to stop this ambitious deader. But his mission becomes even more dangerous when he learns of a mysterious 10-legged monster that prowls the halls of the Capitol Building-a lethal monster with a taste for Corpse flesh.

YESTERDAY, I WILL ... is an anthology released by Fortress Publishing in the Spring of 2009.  The theme is time travel, in all its myriad forms, and I'm honored that my short story "Yesterday, I Will Remember Tomorrow" earned the Grand Master spot in this excellent collection of tales.

"Yesterday, I Will Remember Tomorrow" is the story of a young man who, due to a bizarre accident, finds himself traveling backward in time - his tomorrow is your yesterday.

If you're interested in acquiring a copy of this wonderful anthology, might I suggest contact Jim Lewin at The York Emporium, 343 Market Street in York, PA 17401.  (717) 846-2866 

PHOBOS is a science fiction/mystery that was published by Tor back in 2003.  It received absolutely stellar reviews; Publisher's Weekly called it "a strong contender for SF debut of the year"! 

It's basically a good-old-fashioned whodunit about a series of bizarre deaths at a research station on Mars' largest moon that may or may not be work of an indigenous monster.  Lieutenant Michael Brogue is sent to Phobos to investigate, and quickly finds himself embroiled in deception, intrigue and danger of potentially catastrophic proportions.

For the record, I'm not wild about the cover ...

THE FRANKLIN AFFAIR is my first published novel, released in 2001 by Regency Press, which used to be run by an amazing woman named Kelly Ferjutz, who remains one of my dearest friends. 

Set in December of 1776, it's an historical mystery introducing Henri Gruel, a sixteen-year-old French boy who is recruited as a spy against the visiting Benjamin Franklin, who has come to France to try to win French aid in the colonists' war against the British.

As a product of the small press, only five hundred copies were ever printed ... so, if you've got one, hang onto it!  Who knows?  It might be worth something someday!   (If you'd like a copy, please e-mail me.)
