Final Appearance of 2023

Cupboard Maker Books
157 N Enola Rd
Enola, PA 17025

December 9th & 10th


I will be at Cupboard Maker Books for their Christmas book signing. Over the course of two days there will be 25 authors popping in and out of the store with their books. You can catch me on Sunday, December 10th, from 2pm to 4pm as I help wrap up the event.

Along with The Headless Boy and Six Days, I will have ALL remaining convention inventory with me. Which means, the final 1-3 copies of books I will no longer be stocking for the website or future conventions. These include but are not limited to: Floaters, White Picket Prisons, Deceiver, Buried Memories, and Black Bubbles. (subject to whether or not these are not snagged beforehand via the Signed Books order form on the website. If you’re after one of these, I highly suggest you order it now. Don’t wait.)

Other local authors in attendance and their schedules are in the graphic below.

Come see us and get some Stocking Stuffers signed.



Dracula Beyond Stoker: Renfield

Not only is my short story “Life Eater” available in issue 2: Renfield of DBS Press’s Dracula Beyond Stoker series, I did an author spotlight interview. Since they posted it to Twitter (now X) and many don’t have or use that platform, I’m posting it here for you.

Dracula is dead and Renfield is on the hunt for a new master in “Life Eater 

DBS- How and when did you first experience Dracula?

KO– It was Nosferatu and I remember the day well. I found Frankenstein in kindergarten and begged Mom to check Dracula out at the library. It was rented so we got Nosferatu. I remember my sister’s closed eyes as she battled sleep in the silence of it, claiming “I’m listening!” We still laugh about that.

DBS- Besides Dracula what is your favorite vampire story?

KO– I loved the Anne Rice vampires when they came out, with a special fondness for The Queen of the Damned because of the unique history. I’m a sucker for an origin story, especially a monster, creature, or cryptid.

DBS- What is your favorite vampire movie?

KO– That’s a tough call. My non-Dracula vampire favorite would rotate depending on my mood (comedy, gore, drama) between The Lost Boys, 30 Days of Night, and Only Lovers Left Alive.

DBS- What is your favorite screen portrayal of Renfield?

KO– It’s got to be the OG Dwight Frye. He did such a magnificent job, every other Renfield has been compared to it, even more so than the various Draculas.

DBS- What are you currently reading?

KO– I am almost finished with Devil’s Creek by @todd_keisling . It’s been re-released, and for any who missed it, it’s worth grabbing.

DBS- Are you working on anything you can talk about at the moment?

KO– The third novella in the Wilted Lily series and a coming-of-age retro horror novel set in the 80s. I’m not sure which you’ll see first, due to publisher/agent schedules.

Again, thanks to DBS Press for the spotlight interview and including “Life Eater” in the anthology.

Grab your copy of Dracula Beyond Stoker Issue 2: Renfield. And as always, if you have further or follow-up questions or comments, feel free to post them below.
