Come see me at any of the following panels and signings:

(I’ve already done all these events. Thanks to everyone who came and saw me!

I’ll be on tour for both Horizon and Spill Zone over the next few months. Watch this space for details!)

Spill Zone

Exciting news: I have a graphic novel coming out in May 2017, but you can start reading it now!

It’s called Spill Zone. It’s set in the aftermath of an unexplained event that destroyed a small city in upstate New York. It follows a pair of sisters orphaned by the Spill.

The oldest, Addison, is a young adult providing for her little sister by sneaking into the Zone and taking photographs of the strange phenomena there—the ultimate outsider art.


Her little sister, Lexa, hasn’t spoken since the Spill, but has an eerie connection with the doll she carried out from the wreckage of their hometown.


The question is, what really happened that night? And what connection does the doll Vespertine have with the Spill?

The cool thing is, you can start read the comic NOW online. It’s not all up yet, but we’re adding six pages every Wednesday.

Go to thespillzone.com or click here to start reading.
Or click here to pre-order the actual printed book!

By the way, the art is by the amazing Alex Puvilland, with colors by the wondrous Hilary Sycamore.
