I sold my first story in 1981. Since then I’ve published twenty-five books and over a hundred short stories in anthologies and such magazines as The New Yorker, Playboy, Esquire, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and many others.
My work has been adapted for film and TV, and has been published worldwide. I’ve won the International Horror Guild Award, and been shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award (twice), the MWA’s Edgar, and the HWA’s Bram Stoker Award (six times). I write plays as well as fiction.
I’m also a member of Actors’ Equity Association, and often act in professional theatres in my area.
The acting has led me to record audiobooks, and I’ve recorded works by Michael Moorcock, Andrew Vachss, Zoe Winters, Tom Piccirilli, and David Niall Wilson, as well as a number of my own novels.
Not that any of this has made me a better person…
