Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Below you will find answers to common questions I receive. If your question is not here or you would like something clarified, please don't hesitate to email me.

Can I narrate your stories?

I'm always thrilled that people want to include my work on their podcasts, audiobooks, and Youtube channels. I like to answer this question on a case by case basis. However, as a rule of thumb, if you are making a "good" amount of money from the stories you use, I will ask for a small one-time fee or 10% of the income my story generates for you.

There are exceptions to this rule, especially if you are just starting out or I have known you for a long time.

What's this Windarm Town I see in a lot of your stories?

Many of my stories take place inside what I call "The Dungorth Mythos". As part of the history of that mythos, there is a town in Scotland called Windarm where strange things happen.

Just to muddy the waters further, there is also an American town called Windarm which was founded by people fleeing the Scottish original.

Why is it called "The Dungorth Mythos"?

Much of my work explores the theme that the past stains the future. Many of the supernatural and malevolent events which take place in my stories can be traced all the way back to one location. That place is Dungorth in Scotland.

During the Dark Ages in Scotland, a cruel and terrible leader named The Laird of Dungorth subjected those under his rule to torture, death, and the occult.

Most of my stories and locations, including the twin towns of Windarm, relate back to that event, as Windarm was founded by Dungorth refugees.

Who is Drake Blackwood?

Drake Blackwood is an investigator with a background in psychology. He is drawn to strange and unusual cases, at the expense of his career. Often, he encounters glimpses of what lies beyond the veil.

Drake has been with me for a long time, though most of his stories have not been released yet. I first wrote about Drake when I was 15, and ever since he has featured in novels, short stories, and radio plays.
