May has rolled around, and with it brings Welcome to the Weird West Month at Weird West Fiction. As a steampunk western author, as soon as I heard about it I contacted them to make sure my novel, Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western, and the series, The Adventures of Bodacious Creed, would be included. I just sent them back my answers to the interview questions.

So, I’m honored to announce that I will be one of the featured authors on this fantastic platform. I can’t wait to share the ins and outs of my journey through the trails of Creedverse with an audience that appreciates the grit and whimsy of the Weird West as much as I do.

Tall tales and grand adventures, fill the Weird West genre. We find gleaming guns and robots, and the echoes of horse hooves meeting the whir of mechanical wonders. Whether steeped in fantasy or sticking with science fiction, the Weird West allows us to reimagine the dusty, sunbaked streets of frontier towns. It’s about pushing the boundaries of traditional western stories into the realms of the fantastical and the eerie.

During “Weird West Month,” is hosting interviews, guest posts, and discussions that delve into the minds of creators who dare to explore this niche. The site does a marvelous job of bringing together a community that promotes a genre where anything is possible—if you can dream it, you can write it.

Taking part in Welcome to the Weird West Month feels like coming home. It’s an opportunity to reflect on what draws me to this intersection of genres and to explore how it influences my work. My passion for steampunk and westerns is about deepening the story possibilities of historical settings, and exploring modern concerns in a familiar, yet changed, context.

For those who follow my work, you know the Creedverse is a labor of love that challenges the norms of what westerns can be. In my books, you’ll find not only gunfights and horseback chases but also walking, talking steely companions that might just have a heart of gold (or at least a heart of finely-tuned gears and circuitry).

As Welcome to the Weird West Month progresses, I encourage you all to visit Whether you’re a longtime fan or new to the genre, there’s something wonderfully wild waiting for you. And keep an eye out for my interview—I look forward to sharing it with you and hearing your thoughts.


Important Reminder

The Kickstarter for my latest Creedverse novel, Anna, Daughter of Creed, is running until May 30, 2024! Now’s a great time to back it for signed copies of the novel, copies of the previous series (if you’re interested!), and much more! You can even appear as a Weird West version of yourself in the upcoming book!
