  • About Me

    Started writing screenplays at age 14; sold a few and did alright. Started writing fiction while attending the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, IA, which I only lasted a semester at.

    Had a sabbatical from 2010-2011 which resulted in my winning the PEN American Center's Prison Writing contest in 2012.

    I've been published in a number of journals, both online and in print. Appeared in Akashic Books' "Prison Noir", edited by Joyce Carol Oates as well as Trinity University Press' "Words Without Walls", which features work by folks like Oates, John Edgar Wideman, and Tim O'Brien.

    Edited "The Pittsburgh Anthology" for Belt Publishing, featuring amazing work by Terrance Hayes, Amy Jo Burns, and LaToya Ruby Frazier, etc.

    MFA from The Writer's Foundry in Brooklyn

    Your comic jabs are so deadpan and syncopated they make me gasp before laffing. Your bio reveal is masterful. Congrats on the PEN award. "Funny in a sad way" is perfect. Blues.

    Thanks for the generous comment on "Paris, November, 2004," Eric and for the suggestions. I should dust some of these pieces off the Fictionaut shelf and get them out there, earning their nut.
