I’ve written seven published books and wrote and produced an award-winning podcast called ‘The Seanachai’ that was featured by NPR and on the Apple iTunes Store.

The Story of Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant, who tries to make his Super-villain clients more profitable but often fails because they are so megalomaniacal. (Satire, Superhero)
“Richard Stark fans will relish heistmeister Hobbs in this well-plotted tale of robbery, murder and revenge.” — Publisher’s Weekly
The Seanachai. A delightful podcast from the
earliest days of the genre.
