About Me

Ph.D. with stint in academia, and twenty year + career in market research for TV, film and web companies. Published many articles both on academic and business issues -- and started writing short fiction, for reasons unknown, in 2010. Have uploaded 23 stories to Scribd, and plan to publish a collection next year-- with a focus on my romantic stories.

Politically libertarian, interested in World War 2, Hitchcock, fashion, classical music, especially the Baroque, and futurist in orientation.

Why do you write?

Memories and dream material seem to be the major fuel of my writing-- but movies, too, play a role. I am still wondering why I started to write fiction-- but it had something to do with the death of my mother.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Authors: Muriel Spark, Willa Cather, Rudyard Kipling, Deborah Eisenberg, Evelyn Waugh, Nancy Lemann, Dawn Powell, PG Wodehouse, Allegra Goodman, and Dickens. Also heavily influenced by the Yiddish tradition of Singer and Peretz.

Favorite Books: Bleak House, Scoop, Kim, The Professor's House, Lucy Gayheart, Plain Tales from the Hills, What Ho Jeeves!, The Ballad of Peckham Rye

Sorry I didn't see your note-- didn't realize that the site works the way I does! Just posted one of my stories finally-- but will past some more this weekend. Loved the piece I read of yours, by the way. C.
