Out for the Holidays is a novel Christmas Story for a modern, ever-changing world. It plays with holiday story tropes in a narrative about an atheist confronting his religious family during the Christmas holiday. Tradition collides with a changing world in a story that examines the meaning of the holiday, family, and relevance. All of this is delivered with twists and humor while never losing the feel of the season.

About My Style
My biggest inspirations are Rod Serling and various writers of classic E.C. horror, crime, and suspense comics, along with the inventive horror and science fiction of 80's and 90's cinema. So add George Romero, John Carpenter, and Stephen King to that list. This page gives a nice sampling of some of my narrative works.
