I would love to be a book reviewer for Bookgasm. I am a fiction writer and a voracious reader with some experience in print journalism.

My latest Amazon review:

This review is from: Fatale, Book 1: Death Chases Me (Paperback)
Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips have done it again. I love horror fiction and I love crime fiction, but I seldom like them mixed together.

I was hesitant to pick up the first issue of Fatale, and truthfully only did so because of the creators. By the time I finished reading the first issue, I was hooked.

The story was so fresh and innovative; it was like nothing I have ever read. This creepy horror/detective noir tale has stayed strong through the second arc, and I can hardly wait for each issue to hit the stands.

An older, less flattering review:

simply awful, March 28, 2012

This review is from: BUMBLE-ARDY (Hardcover)
Thankfully we only borrowed this book from the library instead of purchasing it. The illustrations were fine, but the story was completely lacking substance, plot, or any bit of sense.

If this book was submitted by an unknown author, it would have never seen the light of day. I guess I expected better from the author of one of my favorite children’s books; Where The Wild Things Are.

Top Suspense: 13 Classic Stories by 12 Masters of the Genre

A Page Turner of Top Writers, March 20, 2011

This review is from: Top Suspense: 13 Classic Stories by 12 Masters of the Genre (Kindle Edition)
The stories in this collection are fast-paced and raw. It’s like listening to your favorite band’s garage album. Any of these stories alone would be well worth the price tag, but all of them for less than three bucks is a steal.
Max Allan Collins, creator of my favorite hit man, Quarry, leads off the collection with one of his other popular series characters, detective Nathan Heller.
Other highlights include The Canary by Dave Zeltserman, author of the critically acclaimed novel The Caretaker of Lorne Field and recently released Blood Crimes. The Canary is a tight crime story with a twist. Ed Gorman delivers a disturbing look at the future of genetic engineering in The Baby Store. And Harry Shannon surprises with a fresh take on the hit man story in A Handful of Dust.
The whole collection is rounded up with a collaboration by all of the contributors in The Chase, which is about a bad bitch, a bag of money, and a handful of greedy bad guys. It’s a great read and I had fun trying to guess who wrote which parts. There is a link at the end of the story to find out who wrote what.
