Sinister Seeds: A Novel is out Now!

My supernatural horror thriller is out now in eBook. This is an action-pack tale with dark fantasy and horror elements, which should keep you turning pages.

A beleaguered veteran, Harry Mulligan, unwittingly discovers a rare artifact in Boston. The find belongs to a mobster, Patrick Donovan, who collects antiquities from Irish mythology and will stop at nothing to have it returned. Happenstance quickly unfolds into a conflict of good versus evil, as old Harry’s penultimate struggle with the horrors of his past collide with supernatural battles over the artifact.
