  • About Me

    I'm a Cleveland based author who has sponsored and/or participated in readings throughout the midwest and east coast, including Quebec and the west coast.

    I consider the focus of my work to be short stories and flash fiction, having appeared in multiple journals online and in print. I run a blog and small chapbook press (Burning River) and recently completed a writing residency in Val-David, Quebec.

    Novella, When I Return To You, I Will Be Unfed, here:

    Why do you write?

    People fuel it. I have no greater faith as a way to describe the world than human beings. The capacities and capabilities to change our lives and become truly happy or altogether a completely different person over a lifetime is the most powerful thing I've discovered in my lifetime.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Hempel, Eggers, Kerouac, Whitman, Carver
