But that was then. This is now... and I have another new gig, working on MTV's incredibly kickass series, TEEN WOLF. If you haven't seen the show, tune in for the Season 4 premiere on June 23rd. It's going. To be. Epic!

DARK SHADOWS: THE LUCIFER GAMBIT... OUT NOW


I love a good haunted house story, don't you? 

Then why not celebrate Halloween early this year with today's release of THE LUCIFER GAMBIT, my latest DARK SHADOWS audio drama. It's now available on CD or as a digital download from Big Finish Productions. Just go to the link below for purchasing details:

http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-lucifer-gambit-882

A tale of murder, madness, and dark magic, LUCIFER is also a coming-of-age story about a young woman with a terrifying past, Amy Jennings (Stephanie Ellyne). Years ago, Amy's brother Chris Jennings died under horrifying circumstances. But what Amy doesn't know... is that her brother Chris was a werewolf.

Now, Amy's attempt to uncover the truth surrounding Chris's death leads her to the mysterious Randall Manor. There she meets the sinister Isobel and Dominic Randall (Sheila Steafel & Simon Lee Phillips), a wealthy couple who harbor evil secrets of their own. What follows is a sexy, funny, and scary tale of the supernatural.

Needless to say, this was a blast to write! 

And don't worry. You don't need to be a Dark Shadows fan, or have listened to any previous DS/Big Finish audios to jump on board. This is a standalone story both newbies and longtime DS enthusiasts can enjoy, culled from the Val Lewton & Hammer Horror traditions, but with a contemporary spin.

So pick up THE LUCIFER GAMBIT now. Then turn out the lights, turn UP the volume, and listen to this one in the dark (you'll understand why that last bit is soooo important once the secrets of Randall Manor begin to unfold). And get ready for the spooky! 

Special Thanks to Joe Lidster, David Darlington, Darren Gross, and the entire cast & crew for bringing this CD to life!

DARK SHADOWS IN AUGUST: THE LUCIFER GAMBIT





August is almost here and so is THE LUCIFER GAMBIT, my latest contribution to the Big Finish DARK SHADOWS series of audio dramas. Based on the classic supernatural TV soap opera that ran on ABC from 1966-1971, these all-new stories continue the macabre tales of the Collins family and their haunted happenings. 

(And yes, that Johnny Depp movie last year was a big-budget remake of Dark Shadows.)

THE LUCIFER GAMBIT is the perfect tale for those who want to celebrate Halloween a little early! Here's a synopsis of the story, courtesy of the BF website:

"Don't live in the darkness, Amy Jennings."

Adolescence is difficult enough, especially when your family members are vampires and werewolves. But somehow Amy Jennings survived it. Now a young woman, Amy has come back to Collinsport, determined to forget the horrors of childhood and start anew. But growing up means confronting the truth about the world around you and Amy's rite of passage has just begun. Drawn into a world of obscene wealth, blind seduction, and cold-blooded murder by the irresistible Dominic Randall, Amy is about to learn that passion burns. But so does a woman's scorn… because falling in love can be incendiary.

THE LUCIFER GAMBIT is now available for pre-order. You can also download the audio trailer right now at the link below:
