After having served as CEO and Senior Editor for Dark Red Press publishing, CL invested his time and experience working with authors new and experienced in developing their work, finding areas of opportunity and refining the good bits. CL has become a go-to resource for book consulting, public speaking and editing.
CL has been published in such anthologies as 4POCALYPSE: Four Tales of a Dark Future, 4RCHETYPES: Modern Interpretations of Classic Horror, and Twice Upon A Time: Fairytale, Folklore, & Myth. Reimagined & Remastered.
CL also served as editor for 4POCALYPSE and 4RCHETYPES, as well as editor/consultant on works (or parts therein) such as Califhorrornia: Dark Tales from the Golden State and My Vile Bounty by John McCallum Swain; In Bleed Country and Far House, Deep House: a novella of hell by Brian Fatah Steele; and, Pride and Fall by JoAnna Grace (as well as an upcoming sequel to that novel).
He continues to write, speak at local writers’ conferences and groups (such as DFWCon and Writers Guild of Texas), as well as expanding his client base due to his joy at assisting authors to reach greater heights with their own work.
CL lives in Dallas, TX, with his lovely, irrepressible Wife and two dogs who think they run the joint.
