This is undoubtedly my most popular photo. It has been used on posters, album covers, t-shirts, coffee mugs... not to mention hundreds of websites. So here I give it to you.


Taken on Halloween of 2004. The zombie is my friend Joey Bertran, and his makeup is done by Tera Hardwick.

    Hi, I’d love for you to check out my new zombie novel, GNASH. It’s available from Amazon.com for Kindle, only $2.99!


    Quick summary: An ancient fundamentalist organization has chosen to lash out against its enemies by conducting several attacks simultaneously across the globe. One of the assaults unleashes a deadly virus within the Pentagon. When the virus mutates beyond anything the terrorists expected, the nation's capital is plunged into a violent zombie outbreak that threatens to infect everyone in the region. A desperate attempt to stop the potential global epidemic backfires as the infected survive a brutal pre-emptive strike and continue to wreak havoc on the human population when they reemerge from the bowels of the ruined city.

    Thank you,
