MuseItUp Publishing has published seven science-fiction novels. They are Dark Wizard; Dax Rigby, War Correspondent, and five in the ongoing Inspector of the Cross series: Inspector of the Cross, Kingdom of the Jax, Defender of the Flame, Conqueror of the Stars, and Skyburst.

MuseItUp has also published the paranormal fantasy The Blue of Her Hair, the Gold of Her Eyes (winner of Preditor’s and Editor’s 2011 Annual Readers Poll), More Stately Mansions, and the dark erotic thrillers Steam Heat and Wet Dreams.

Two of my major themes are the endless, mind-stretching wonders of the universe and the limitless possibilities of transformation: sexual, cosmic, and otherwise. I’m the former Chairman of the Board of the Horror Writers Association and the previous editor of Horror Magazine.
