Gothic Headdress

Today I whipped out a really nifty piece for model Dana Byrd. Some of the elements were pre-made but I did all of the construction and the design of the piece. As soon as I get the finished photos from the shoot, I’ll be happy to share them!



Birthdays Abound!!

My birthday was October 5th and “Strax and the Widow” turned one on September 25th. I can’t believe it’s been a year since it’s digital publication.

I had hoped to have Strax in paperback form and its sequel, “Revenge and Machinery” completed. I also had hoped to have a few new vamp stories online and the first ten adventures of Will in a compilation. But this year, visual art took up so much more of my time. But it was worth it. I’ve churned out so many great pieces this year and sold a lot of work. I’m hoping to have most of the steampunk work finished in time for the holidays.

In the meantime, I’d like to celebrate my and Strax’s birthdays with a small sale. From October 8th until October 15th, Strax and the Widow will be on sale for $1.99 on amazon/kindle. The Vampire’s Little Black Book series will continue to be $.99 per short story until I have the compilation completed. So please, take a gander, and share it with your friends! The link is here:


Again, you don’t have to have a kindle to download it, just the kindle app or program for your e-devices.

I am truly grateful to be alive to celebrate another birthday and doing what I love to do!! Thank YOU!!!

As always, thank you for reading.
