Not only is he credited with inventing the question mark, he unsuccessfully tried to launch a new number between seven and eight.When not editing or writing, he is a champion curler and often impersonates Jack Bauer, but only in a French accent. He raises free range jackalopes with his wife and two sons ... when they are not solving murder mysteries.The way he sees is, as a fiction writer, he's a professional liar. His dark fiction has been published in numerous magazines, anthologies, and web sites, most recently including Dark Dreams II&III, Apex Magazine, Black Static, and Weird Tales Magazine. He has two novellas, Orgy of Souls (co-written with Wrath James White, Apex Books) and Devil's Marionette (Shroud Books), and edited the anthology Dark Faith (with Jerry L. Gordon, Apex Books).
