Myself and Gregory Ashe are the latest guests on Jeff and Will's Big Gay Fiction Podcast! Jeff asked us about the latest release in the Auden & O'Callaghan Mystery series, A Friend in the Fire. We discussed the origins of Sam and Rufus, an unconventional co-writing process, Greg's sneaky passive aggressive plotting tendencies, and we also recommend some books (of course!)

You can watch the video here or listen at Podcast services such as Apple, Spotify, SoundCloud, and more.

New Release: A Friend in the Fire


A Friend in the Fire
is now available in ebook and paperback format with all online vendors! This is my co-written mystery series with the absolutely fantastic and talented Gregory Ashe, An Auden & O'Callaghan Mystery. Book 2 brings our heroes back to New York City and into each other's orbits as they try to solve a string of contemporary murders tied to a familial cold case.

Artwork: Reese Dante

Blurb: After solving the mystery behind the death of his former friend in July, ex-Army Sam Auden has been aimlessly wandering the country. Everything had gone sideways in New York City, so when his phone rings three months later, the caller is the last person Sam expected to be asking for help.

Confidential informant Rufus O’Callaghan has been struggling. His NYPD contact was murdered over the summer, and the man Rufus is head over heels for was driven away by his own undiagnosed trauma. But when he receives an anonymous letter that promises information on his mother, life goes from dark to dangerous in the blink of an eye.

Sam and Rufus must dig into Rufus’s rough and turbulent past in order to solve a series of contemporary murders connected to his mother. And if the two can’t expose who the killer is in time, they will most certainly become his next targets.

Audio - 11:59


11:59, originally featured in the Devil Take Me anthology, narrated by Greg Tremblay, has returned! Due to contracts and rights reversals, I did undergo re-recording with a new narrator at the helm, and that talent was Wyatt Baker! Pick up a copy of this novella today at Amazon, Audible, or iTunes.

Length: 1 hour, 48 minutes

Blurb: Asuka Kawashima is a man without dreams.

Nightmares plague humanity and cross into the waking world - chasing after their dreamers and transforming them into hideous monsters that haunt New York City at night. When Asuka is faced with the choice of either dying or selling his soul to the Devil, he offers it in exchange for the chance to continue protecting people. But the Devil is sly, and while he takes Asuka’s ability to dream, making him immune to nightmares, it also removed Asuka’s abstract sense of dreaming. Now life is gray, hopeless, and without wishes.

A chance meeting five years later leads Asuka to Merrick Grace, a man who, despite the dismal world around them, still believes there will be a day when monsters cease to exist. When the Devil reappears, asking for a favor in return for his soul, Asuka must make another difficult decision...

If the chance to dream again—to share a life with Merrick, full of hope and happiness—is worth the risk of almost certain death.

Previously featured in the Devil Take Me anthology.

Audio - The Gangster


The Gangster (Magic & Steam: Book Two), with the return of narrator Declan Winters, is now live! I was truly blown away by where Declan took the content of this book and hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. Pick up a copy today at Amazon or Audible. iTunes link will be live in a few days.

Blurb: 1881—Special Agent Gillian Hamilton, magic caster for the Federal Bureau of Magic and Steam, has recovered from injuries obtained while in Shallow Grave, Arizona. Now back in New York City, Gillian makes an arrest on New Year’s Eve that leads to information on a gangster, known only as Tick Tock, who’s perfected utilizing elemental magic ammunition. This report complicates Gillian’s holiday plans, specifically those with infamous outlaw, Gunner the Deadly, who promised they’d ring in 1882 together.

The two men stand on the cusp of a romance that needs to be explored intimately and privately. But when Gillian’s residence is broken into by a magical mechanical man who tries to murder him on behalf of Tick Tock, he and Gunner must immediately investigate the city’s ruthless street gangs before the illegal magic becomes a threat that cannot be contained.

This might be their most wild adventure yet, but criminal undergrounds can’t compare to the dangers of the heart. Gillian must balance his career in law enforcement with his love for a vigilante, or lose both entirely.

The novel-length follow-up to The Engineer, in the exciting new steampunk series, Magic & Steam.
