If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I’ve asked for a prehensile tail for Christmas for the past ten years. The moment I get one, it’s on!

Night owl, or early bird?
My best hours are between 10pm and 2am. I can’t function before 10am.

One food you would never eat?
I don’t eat anything green.

Pet Peeves?
People who confuse cynicism and sarcasm, people who confuse schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder, people who refer to themselves as “myself,” and people.

Any other books in the works?
I plan to release an adult, psychological thriller in November entitled MINDFRONT. The sequel to THE FAUSTIANHOST should be out next summer.

What was your favorite book when you were a child?
I devoured the Encyclopedia Brown series. Someone needs to bring those back.

How did you know you should become an author?
I’m an excellent liar. And I don’t possess any worthwhile skills beyond the arts.

Hidden talent?
I can juggle, and touch my nose with my tongue.

What do you do in your free time?
I run 9 miles every day, read as much as I can, and try to kick my wife’s butt at Scrabble.

Print or Ebook?
I love ebooks!

Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate is one of the basic food groups for me.

Regular or Diet?
I detest all diet things. One of my goals in life is to grow so large that one of the walls in my home needs to be removed so I can be transported to the hospital on a flatbed truck, and that’s not going to happen with diet food.

Shoes or Sandals?
Barefoot. All shoes are the devil.

Cats or Dog?
Neither. I despise all mammals living in my house. My favorite pet we ever owned was a snake.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I memorized all the countries, capitals, and flags of the world. I’m still not sure why.

The Faustian Host

After losing his family and his home, 14-year-old Tony is forced to move from Florida to Massachusetts to attend Kalos Academy, an unconventional school for gifted children. Strange things begin to happen the day he arrives, and soon stories of plagues, monsters, and mystical objects surround him. Refusing to believe superstitions, Tony struggles to explain the occurrences logically, until he comes face to face with a satanic cult determined to bring about the end of the world.
