NON-FICTION GENRE WORK
My non-fiction horror writing has been featured by many sites, including Graveyard Shift and Bloody Disgusting. Over at Graveyard Shift, I’ve amassed more than 3.5 million views by crafting original pieces about topics such as children’s horror literature, extreme haunted houses, cryptids, true crime, horror movies, and things that are just plain creepy.
My horror and dark art photography has been included in multiple media formats, including several books, magazines, and the short horror film CathARTic. In total, my photos have been published and exhibited in more than 100 places worldwide. Numerous pieces are available for licensing for everything from book covers to haunted attraction promotional pieces.
