For-profit prisons. Imagine the business model has grown in volume and political influence to become a driving force in the economy. Imagine laws purposely made draconian to feed that business model, fill those beds. Imagine getting tangled up in that system through an innocent mistake. Gil and Aggie Balderas find out what lies behind those walls, and their lives are forever changed.
How far would Guardian Systems go to keep the pipeline full, boost profits? Zach Winters discovers their insidious scheme and decides to do something about it…but will he survive?
What if it’s not fiction, after all?
Undoubtedly the darkest thing I’ve ever written…

I know, it’s been a while since I had a brand-new release to announce. That said, I assure you I’ve been writing at the same clip I’ve kept up since DarkFuse picked up THE GENESIS CODE about five years ago. No, it’s been more a matter of happenstance, with DarkFuse shutting down this year. Now I am very pleased to announce that my new publisher, Crossroad Press, just released my latest, DOWN THE BRINK.
DOWN THE BRINK is definitely the darkest novel I’ve written to date–and perhaps the most frighteningly topical/timely. I’ll let the back cover copy introduce you. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think!
Human misery is a profit center. Zach Winters knows this all too well.
In his IT job at Guardian Systems, Inc., the nation’s largest for-profit prison company, Zach sees all the numbers. GSI stops at nothing to drive up profits. He despises everything GSI stands for and is thrilled to land a job at MoonPop, developer and publisher of the wildly popular free game app of the same name. Zach loves his new job. He thinks he has it made—until his curiosity gets the better of him.
Life is good for Gil and Aggie Balderas. Gil’s working hard to make his dream of opening his own construction firm a reality. But one day, Gil makes a simple mistake. A simple mistake that lands him in prison for six months. What he experiences inside changes him forever.
Not all prisons are made from concrete and razor wire…

I am thrilled to announce that Crossroad Press has released the Audible.com audiobook version of my debut novel, The Genesis Code! Daniel Dorse narrates it with his wonderful voice. This is my first audiobook ever, and I’m excited to see it happen.
Find it here. Thanks!
I’ve been working on my art the past couple of years–in addition to writing, and working, and more. I recently created several portfolios on Redbubble, and one piece of my work is featured on Zazu’s House Parrot Sanctuary Pixels site.
I found out Pixels/Fine Art America was offering yoga mats and that did it (well, not just yoga mats, lots of different products, but the yoga mats put me over the edge in deciding to set up there!). I set up a page there and uploaded my work. It’s “live” now. Please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Got it all uploaded! So there are 4 art collections and 1 miscellaneous photography collection (older). The art categories are:
The pieces are mainly watercolor or colored pencil, or the two mixed. One is gouache and one is watercolor and pastels. Check it out. I’ll upload more as I complete and digitize more pieces. Thanks!

Now I have several collections/portfolios of my art (colored pencils, watercolors, sometimes mixed) going:
Coming soon: landscapes inspired by Canada.
Please check them out and let me know what you think. Thanks!

No, I don’t “just” write novels, I’ve also been working on my art. I mostly work in colored pencil (Prismacolor Premier) and watercolor. I finally got a chance to post a new collection up on Redbubble, entitled: Abandoned, Roadside, and Retro. I have a number of birds and abstract pieces I plan to post in their own collections, as time permits.
Meanwhile, please stop by Redbubble and check out my collection. You can get the images on various sorts of products to suit your fancy. Thanks!
