Punk Fiction R.I.P.

The leap year seems like the right moment to announce the end of Punk Fiction. I have given it a lot of thought, and the best way forward is to start something new. I have grown as a writer since my rough DIY beginnings, and it is time for change. I made this decision last month. Quietly, I have removed my first two books, Where the Road Roams and Dark Lands, from publication. The one that goes out of print today is Anarchy: Strange Tales of Outsiders. Anarchy contains most of the content of those books in addition to other short stories, poetry, and flash fiction, so it makes sense to retire it too.

Seven years is a good run. I have really enjoyed the journey as much as it has been a roller coaster of one. The learning experience was worth the ride. Over the next few months, I will dismantle the rest, one title at a time. Some stories will be shelved indefinitely, and others may find a new life. The future is uncertain, but it is full of possibilities.

The following never-before-published manuscripts will not be a part of Punk Fiction and are currently seeking distribution:

Johnny’s got a problem, and he is out of control. Released from rehab, the injustice of being locked up and his secret feelings create static in his head. One summer night in 1985, he meets Gordon for a night of car-hopping and vandalism, and they become fast friends.

Based on true events, the Rebel’s Edge series deals with mental health and substance abuse issues from the point of view of a teenager living in the 1980s. Suburbia is the first manuscript in the series, followed by Punks and Over the Edge.


In the summer of 1973, Lane meets someone who is different, like himself. Together, they are lured into one of the most horrific crimes in the annals of American history.

Lane Bowden 1973 (aka Dark Journey) takes on a true crime backdrop in this coming-of-age horror novel.


One day, the world collapsed. A meteor had struck the moon, raining lunar debris. Oceans rose, and fires burned. The decades of World War III ended with devastation and disease spread. The lucky ones built ships and fled to deep space. Under a fractured police state, resources were mined to the brink for the off-world colonies while deviant technology grew across dangerous lands. Cade and Frost were born into the chaos. Punks with no future—they were just looking for a thrill.

Future-Thrill is a wild dystopian, sci-fi, cyberpunk novel set in 2077.
