His last novel - The Milkman (EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy), a murder mystery set in a world with no governments – won a gold medal from the Independent Publisher Book Awards and was a finalist in the Eric Hoffer awards. A sequel, The Link Boy, debuts in May. His previous novel, Cinco de Mayo, was a finalist for an Alberta Reader’s Choice Award. He has written for DC Comics, several magazines (fiction and non-fiction) the Urban Green Man anthology and two urban fantasy novels for young readers.
