Hey ya’ll! I hail from South Dakota, born and raised, and I’m still there. I’m a guy who has published horror and nonfiction in the mainstream markets, and co-authored two history books.
But what got me into metal?
That’d be Dokken’s Tooth and Nail, which is still one of my all-time favorites. I joined Hardrock Haven many moons ago, and besides reviewing and interviewing bands, I also play a PR and label relations role with the site.
At Hardrock Haven, I hope my reviews help you make some decisions on which releases are worth your coin, and my interviews give you some insight into the artist behind the music. Besides my contributions to Hardrock Haven, I’m helping write lyrics with a band from Germany, I’m working on background interviews for Ron Keel and his autobiography is out now, and if you picked up Teenage Casket Company Best Kept Secret, well, I wrote the foreward in that release too. I like to keep myself all over the place, and it’s been working out pretty well … all thanks to Hardrock Haven!
I also co-wrote a heavy metal horror novella with Hardrock Haven madman Mark Allen called Mudslingers. You can find it at Amazon.com.
Thanks for making Hardrock Haven your stop for everything Rock and Metal!
