On sale now! Johnston McCulley’s swashbuckling adventurer returns in Zorro: Swordplay and Romance, an all-new book featuring 15 new stories starring the Curse of Capistrano. I am thrilled to be part of this release. Zorro: Swordplay and Romance includes my story, “Revenge of the Sea Witch” as well as artwork I created for one of the other stories.

Zorro, a masked rogue, gave the citizens of Spanish California the courage to resist tyranny! He fought with a flashing sword — and a dashing smile. The tyrants referred to him as a ‘bandit,’ but everyone knew Zorro only stole the hearts of admiring señoritas — and one beautiful tavern-owner in particular.

These new short stories, starring the famous character created by Johnston McCulley, emphasize the wily Fox's romantic side, as he charms — and slashes — his way through 15 new adventures!
