It’s multiple project madness!


I’ve been doing a lot lately, too much, like always. Here is just a quick round up of what I’m working on and what I’ve been doing. I promise to update you all more, each week from now on!



Capricon 34

Burial Day Books attended Capricon 34. We shared a table with two wonderful authors that are part of the Post Mortem Press family with me; Chris Larsen, author of LOSING TOUCH ( and Michael Matula, author of TRY NOT TO BURN (


Next up, is


Pop-Up Book Fair!
On April 12th, Burial Day Books will be at the Pop-Up Book Fair at The Ernest Hemingway Museum in Oak Park, Illinois.



I was interviewed about my novel SANTA MUERTE, my short story collection LOTERIA, my writing projects and Burial Day Books on My Paranormal Experience Live. The link is below if you want to listen in. It was a great time



I wrote the below article on witch markets for Atlas Obscura. It was great research and I’m looking forward to my next couple of articles for them. They are a great website. Check them out!



I’m still trying to finish up SANTA MUERTE 2, and a poetry collection and another novel. Oh, and I’m writing one short story a week for the rest of the year. My next blog post will be all about that. This year, I want to focus on these projects, as I feel like that’s enough.


Mystery Writers of America

I’m a member now! It’s official! Yay! I’m writing for their newsletter, interviewing fellow young adult authors, and just writing random, fun blog posts for them. I’m honored and very glad to be a part of MWA!


Thanks for checking in friends!
