About Me

Writer living in North Carolina, one commercially published novel to my name (although I've written several). Into extreme music, experimental lit, weird science. I write flash at the 6S website on occasion.

Why do you write?

Like any author, I have an unbelievable ego that presumes others will have any interest whatsoever in sacrificing their time and focus to read the made-up stories I write. Being a lifelong obsessive reader, I feel that fiction can be a powerful, useful tool in the living of everyday life, through catharsis and frisson. Works of fiction have had a meaningful role in my life, so I strive to provide a similar experience for others. I mostly flounder in this pursuit, but succeed occasionally enough that it keeps me going.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Favorite authors: William Gaddis, Margaret Atwood, Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo, Toni Morrison, John Updike, Roberto Bolano, David Foster Wallace, John Banville, Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, Kathe Koja, Robert Cormier, Cormac McCarthy, David Markson.
