“Gutmouth” is the first stand alone bizarro story and was released in 2012. He’s got a mouth in his gut. This toothy, foul-mouthed, obnoxious, pig of a mouth. His girlfriend doesn’t seem to mind too much, luckily. Marie, the cyber prostitute and one legged stripper love of his life is quite accepting of the whole thing. Then just a little too accepting.

What would you do if your girlfriend cheated on you with the voracious yapper located underneath your belly button? If you live in Gutmouth’s world- this bleak city where spontaneous and gruesome mutations aren’t a big deal, klepto-roaches take anything that aren’t tied down, drugs turn your pain into pleasure, your best friend is a misogynistic rat-man, and consumers are tortured for growing food-well then you might do something pretty crazy. And what if you ended up getting caught?

“Hungry Darkness” is the first stand alone novel and was released in 2015. Nick Ayres wanted to be the very first man that explored all of the Caulkers’ Giant Cave, the largest underwater cave in the world. But instead of fame and fortune, he found death at the hands of something which defies science, and accidentally unleashes it on the island’s unsuspecting population.

Gabriel Robles is the guy that’s tasked to take care of this monster. He knows the water and all of its inhabitants better than anybody else, yet he has never faced something so lethal before. Robles must figure out something rather quick like, because the victims continue to pile up and it’s just a matter of time before the blood in the water becomes an issue for all of Belize, possibly even the world.

“Zero Saints” is the second stand alone novel and was released in 2015. Fernando, drug dealer and enforcer, has seen some better days of late. On his way back home from work, some heavily-tattooed gangsters throw him in the back of some car and take him to this abandoned house, where they saw off his buddy’s head and feed the kid’s fingers to…well, something.

Their message is quite clear: this is their turf, now. However Fernando’s not put down so easily. Using the assistance of an insane Puerto Rican pop sensation, a Santeria priestess, a Russian hitman, and a very human dog, he will build up the courage (and the firepower) that he will need in order to fight a gangbanger who is a bit more than just human.

“Coyote Songs” is the third stand alone novel and was released in 2018. Old gods and ghosts guide the hands of those that are all caught up in a violent struggle to save the soul of the American southwest.

A guy tasked with shuttling kids over the border believes that the Virgin Mary is guiding him towards a final justice. One woman offers up colonizer blood to the Mother of Chaos. One boy joins up with corpse destroyers in order to get vengeance for his dad’s death.

These stories all intertwine with those of one vengeful spirit and a hungry creature to paint a compelling, timely, pulpy image of revenge, hope, and family.

“The Devil Takes You Home” is the fourth stand alone novel and was released in 2022. A genre defying thriller about a dad who is desperate to salvage what is left of his family, even if this means a descent into violence, both supernatural and of our own horrifying world.

Mario, buried in debt because of his young daughter’s illness, and his marriage at the brink, reluctantly takes a job as a hitman. He surprises himself with his proclivity for violence. After a tragedy destroys the life that he once knew, he agrees to take on a final job: hijack a cartel’s cash shipment before it can get to Mexico. Along with an old friend and Juanca (a cartel insider), Mario goes off on this near suicidal mission, which is going to either leave him with either a bullet in the head or a cool $200,000.

However the path to ruin or reward is never quite as straight as it might first appear. While the three complicated men travel on through the never ending landscape of Texas, across the border and back, their hidden motives are laid bare alongside nightmarish encounters which defy all explanation. One thing is for sure: even if Mario is able to make it out alive, he’s not going to be the same.
