In honor of the release of my new novella, Nightshades, I’ve written a number of essays for a few different outlets. I’m participating in Tor.com’s ongoing series “That Was Awesome,” which is where writers discuss another author’s work; “Five Books About,” where I’ll be discussing five other books about government agencies that deal with the supernatural; and “And Related Subjects,” which is a (hopefully) funny piece about my quest to find a hobby in my thirties. I’ve also got a piece over at “Read it Forward,” which is about finding signature weapons for vampires.
Below are the release dates for each piece. As they comes out, I’ll be adding the links, so please bookmark this page for future perusal. Happy reading!
