2019 was a great year. I met a lot of new friends, found new opportunities, and released my short story compilation, Dying to Know. Now, we enter 2020! The next plan is to release the children’s book spinoff of The Karma Chronicles, My Best Friend’s a Ninja! In addition, I will also publish a new young adult novel titled God of Gangs. There’ll be more information in the future!
Stay strong and make this year the best one that you can!
I’m excited to announce a new project in the works. Ever wonder what Karma and her friends were like as kids? Wonder no more! Follow her best friend, Nina, as she tries to solve the mystery of what her super secret, super stealthy, super deadly ninja buddy does in her spare time. This one will be a different approach as it will be fully illustrated and will be 100% family-friendly. Get ready to feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
This project will be huge! It’ll be a while for this one to come out. Stay tuned!
I’m proud to announce my brand new book! Be sure to check out Dying to Know, available now!
Nothing is as it seems in these seven twisted tales.
Anything that can happen, will happen.
A man learns of the exact time of his death. A boy worshipped as a god has the power to kill with his mind. And a cult of immortals conducts their yearly meeting in their new bodies. These stories and more delve into mortality and the human existence with a dash of the supernatural, fantastical, and sometimes just plain bizarre.
What is the value of human life? What are the consequences of death? Don’t get too attached to the men and women in these tales.
Not all will make it out alive…

The Karma Chronicles
The secret lives of ninjas in our modern world are coming to an end. War between the remaining shinobi families is inevitable…
During her summer vacation before her senior year of high school, Carmella and her friends take on their biggest challenge yet—preventing her beloved’s family, the Crimson Blade Clan, from engaging in a blood-battle with the equally merciless clan, the Sapphire Moon. She’ll need to leave the urban streets of Blyton behind to journey overseas to Japan—the birthplace of ninjutsu, for her final stand. With friends and loved ones on each side of the battlefield, regardless of who wins, everyone loses.
To make matters worse, the genetically cloned and enhanced heir of Carmella’s family lurks in the shadows, manipulating the tension. Dharma may look like an innocent high school girl on the outside, but she and her deadly league of rogue ninjas will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Carmella will need to pull out every ounce of strength, weapon, and ninjutsu, to put an end to this threat once and for all. She’ll have to suit up and become Karma, one final time…
With a war brewing between rivaling ninja clans, Karma will have to sacrifice her summer vacation and travel to Japan to end the bloodshed. But within the shadows, a secret society of rogue ninjas have a different plan to stop her.
I’m excited to announce that my third and final installment of Karma Chronicles, Crimson Blade, is now complete. It’s currently undergoing some last-minute edits and changes, but is set to be released on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com on February 28th of this year!
I’m really proud of how this last book has turned out. Be sure to check out Violet Star and Sapphire Moon, if you want to get caught up on all the action.
Stay tuned for updates!
Let me just tell you, I have an amazing girlfriend! She’s quite the catch! For my 28th birthday, she decided to take me out to Seattle, Washington to celebrate. I can’t thank her enough for the experience. It was an incredible vacation and I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather celebrate it with. You can check out some of are journey below, Ninjas!
Had a great time at the Odysea Aquarium in Scottsdale, AZ. The adventure was a triple-threat. As an animal lover, it was awesome to check out the crocs, sharks, stingrays, and my personal favorite, the pufferfish in their underwater homes.
After that, was the Scottsdale Butterfly Wonderland. I used to catch butterflies all the time as a kid.
Now, I had a chance to fully immerse myself in their flower and tree-filled paradise. Gotta love lush local gardens!
I think they like me. I picked up a couple of hitch hikers…
Finally, Celeste and I wrapped up the day with the Laser Maze challenge. You heard that right!
Think of the first Mission Impossible movie when Tom Cruise ducks, dodges, and dives through countless red laser beams without touching a single one.
All of this and more was at Odysea in Scottsdale, Arizona—just about 20 minutes from Phoenix. It was a lot of fun and I definitely recommend it to everyone. I’ll be back soon to beat the high score at the laser maze and see how my butterflies and fish buds are doing.
