I wrote The Act of Laughing over ten years ago. It was the first book I ever attempted to write, and it reads like a Bentley Little or John Saul novel, basically. It’s about a modern-day Ba’al-worshipping cult that also functions as a homeowners association. It’s led by a former archaeologist named Donald Raines, who discovered this ancient, secret religion on one of his excursions to Tunisia in the late ’70s.
Grave Concerns is a collection of dark and deranged short stories that loosely fall under the umbrella of horror, I suppose. They’re all stories I’ve posted here on the blog(but have since hidden from public view, mostly.)
