Gate Night

My first horror story EVER has been published by the awesome boys at Jersey Devil Press.

It’s a story about Gaelic dog people called Gate Night. Now, in my neck of the woods the day before Halloween was called Gate Night. I always assumed it had something to do with the gates of hell opening up. I’ve come to learn that in most parts of the country it’s traditionally called Devil’s Night or Mischief Night but hey, what can I say? We’re weird up in the Hudson Valley.

The story centers around Saimhain which is a Gaelic harvest holiday that celebrates the end of the “light half” of the year and the beginning of the “dark half.” It’s 100% peaceful holiday and not at all like the awful things Killian does in the woods.

Bones. Death. Dogs. Enjoy!

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.
