Author has written 5 stories for Supernatural, Fantasy, Action, and Mystery.

Sorry - the Infected stories have been removed. (Because, well, they're published, or in the process of being published.) But I hope to add some shorts and web exclusives here, so thank you for sticking with me. And sorry about all the story pruning.

NOTE: Infected: Freefall is on sale from Dreamspinner Press November 25th. It has an awesome cover too. Out now from Dreamspinner as well is a hard boiled detective novella called The Little Death. Also out now, through Riptide Publishing, is a short story called Pretty Monsters (Josh of the Damned #1). If you like horror/comedies, I hope you'll check it out.

NEW ONLINE VENTURE: I'm part of the writing staff at Redemption Reef, a gay prose soap opera. I'm writing Flynn, the bad boy with a heart of gold. Check it out here if you're interested: http://redemptionreef.wordpress.com/

MORE NEW: Yet another book based mix. http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-prey-soundtrack-mix

NEW: You may notice that the first two stories in my Infected stories, Infected & Prey, are now missing. This is because they will be published through Dreamspinner Press shortly. Yaay! I will put up more information on it as the info becomes available. THANK YOU READERS! You are great people, and the best readers a writer could have.

EVEN NEWER: And here is that info - http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/index.php?cPath=55_274

I have a short, non Roan story coming up in an anthology too. I'll put up the link for that when it's available.

Ah, here it is: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=makingcontact&osCsid=ci7lm4a6cgfqc9v5sgv1rinod6&x=0&y=0

Oh! And thanks to everyone who nominated Infected for the La Campanella Award for horror story! It's just an honor to be nominated. And this isn't the only thing! I won for best supernatural story in the SRA Awards. So thanks are due there too. You guys are the best readers a writer could have.

And now, an Infected soundtrack. Kind of. See here: http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-soundtrack-1

There's now a Roan's Mix available, meaning noisy stuff he listens to: https://8tracks.com/mixes/60149

A little warning - this is even louder than the first, so brace yourself. (Although I think this explains Roan as well through sound as anything could.)

New Again! http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-the-love-themes-with-few-love-songs

Another NEW! There's now a Paris mixtape, for all your dance and Brit rock needs: http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-the-paris-mix

NEW! A Holden mix tape. I promise, I'll stop. http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-the-holden-mix

One more NEW mix tape! I've already established that Roan made a mix CD for the Falcons hockey team, so here it is: http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-the-falcons-mix

Aggressive, loud, and strangely funny (and very homo-erotic). This may reflect Roan's sense of humor better than anything so far.

ANOTHER NEW: Paris's Mix #2: http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-paris-mix-2

Also, Dylan's mix, for the mellower amongst us: http://8tracks.com/notmanos/infected-dylan-s-mix

And for the dance fans, a Panic mix: http://8tracks.com/notmanos/panic-mix

Not another one! http://8tracks.com/notmanos/roan-s-mix-3

On the occasion of my book being published! (Why not?) http://8tracks.com/notmanos/the-my-book-is-published-mix

NEW: Because I never get tired of this, I now have an online radio station: http://songza.com/listen/turn-your-crank-to-frank

If you have a request, don't hesitate to ask.

I doubt this makes up for the missing stories, but maybe it's distracting.

I do this for the hell of it. I hope you find my writings at least a little entertaining.

I do have a self-published horror novel, Alone With The Dead, available here. The sequel can be found below.

Please drop by if you're so inclined.
