Welcome to!

Check out Jeff’s blog, updated regularly!

It’s been ages since I’ve updated this page. In part, that’s because I wanted people to be able to read about Empty Rooms on the front page, and in part it’s because I’ve been busy with other stuff.

What other stuff? Primarily a novel called 7 SYKOS, which I wrote with partner Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell, which we’ve just turned in to our editor at HarperCollins. It’s scheduled for release on January 26, 2016. Although it’s billed as science fiction, we think of it as a contemporary or near-future thriller with elements of scientific extrapolation (in the realm of neuroscience) and even horror. In other words, it’s fast-paced, scary, and fun.

Here are a few places you can preorder it, so you’ll know that you’ll get it as soon as it’s released:


Barnes & Noble

Mysterious Galaxy



More details, and cover art, when I get ‘em!

In other book news, here’s a book that I didn’t write—my pal Jonathan Maberry did—but it’s connected to a book I did write. Deadlands: Ghostwalkers is the first full-length novel based on the hugely popular Weird Western RPG Deadlands, and it’s coming out from Tor Books in September. My book—the second Deadlands novel—is called Deadlands: Thunder Moon Rising, and it’ll be out in 2016.

Even sooner, there’s some comic book work on the way. On September 3, a trade paperback collection of comic book stories featuring everybody's favorite TV helicopter, Airwolf Airstrikes, hits the stands. My story, "Eye in the Sky," kicks off the collection. And on October 7th, another collaboration with Marcy (and her first published comics work!), our comic book story "Scream Queen," appears in the collection Evil Dead 2: Tales of the Ex Mortis, also available from comic book retailers everywhere.

Marcy and I also have more short stories on the way. Next up, I think, is “Letting Go the Ghosts” in the Occupied Earth anthology.

As for Empty Rooms, it’s still out there, still picking up wonderful reviews like this one (scroll down) from Mystery Scene magazine, which says, in part, “In Jeffrey J. Mariotte’s gripping Empty Rooms, a cop and an ex-cop pair up to examine the cold case of Angela Morton, an 11-year-old girl who went missing from her Detroit neighborhood 13 years earlier… This is not a book for the timid or easily shocked: the theme of violence against children is rough stuff. Despite this, Empty Rooms remains a highly recommended read.”

You can buy it at:

Indiebound (pick an independent bookstore near you, or one you like)

Barnes & Noble


If you haven’t bought it yet, you really should.

Thanks for reading!
