The Avenger and Me

“In the roaring heart of the crucible, steel is made. In the raging flame of personal tragedy, men are sometimes forged into something more than human.”

My favorite pulp hero has always been The Avenger. The quality of the writing combined with the best pulp origin story I ever saw won me over from the very first story. When The Avenger: The Justice Inc. Files comes out from Moonstone, you’ll get to see me bring a longtime dream to fruition – I got to write The Avenger and his friends in a story called “The Devil’s Workmen.” I still can’t believe it actually happened and I can’t wait to hold the book in my hands.

The Avenger also served as the primary inspiration for my new character Lazarus Gray. I distilled the very best of The Avenger and gave it my own special twist. Lazarus teams up with The Rook in the sixth volume of The Rook Chronicles and then will star in at least two upcoming books from Pro Se Press.
