Venom and Other Stories 
Hello folks. I'm still pretty busy with my mom so posting will be fairly sporadic for a while but in the meantime I wanted to let you know that my short story collection, Venom and Other Stories, is now for sale on Amazon. It's an ebook you can read on your Kindle, Ipad, Iphone, PC, Blackberry, Android or other digital device. Here's the product description:

A callous comic book publisher. A woman in love. A reporter in the old west. A psychiatric patient. A kidnapper. A Broadway actor.

Six people. Six short and twisted tales of terror and suspense.

The early reviews are in!

"Classic pulp fiction style. Quick-paced. Nasty characters. Very interesting story concepts, easy to read, kept me interested from beginning to end."

- Steve J. Scearce

"Clever, creepy, and twisted. My heart is still racing!"

- Denise Osmon Malinowski

Venom and Other Stories

I've also made a few other things available that may be of interest. I stumbled across these stories while doing research in old Kansas newspapers and thought that someone might like to read them.

A Trip To Salt Lake City, 1870

A Trip to the Verdigris and Caney Rivers in Kansas, 1869

"A Trip to the Verdigris..." is particularly interesting if you are curious about the early history of the Kansas settlers and how they lived. Pretty cool stuff.
