My fiction has been published in numerous anthologies and magazines, including DarkFuse #5, Turn to Ash Vol. 0, and Straylight Literary Arts Magazine. My criticism has appeared recently in MUBI Notebook, The Film Stage, and Vague Visages. Darkest Hours, my debut short fiction collection, is slated for a November release with Unnerving.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Movie Film

Tobe Hooper’s ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Offers a Close-Up Look at Cosmic Pessimism

“Under its brutal dissembling of anthropocentrism and customary moral divides, ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ points to the terror of a harsh and uncaring universe.”

Eli Roth Replaces Trademark Irreverence with Quiet Reverence for ‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls’

“Ultimately, it seems that the film’s pleasant and inoffensive affect is exactly what Roth intends. The work is unassuming, competently handled and ably colored within its established lines. It aims clearly and unwaveringly to please a young target audience.”
