About Me

I am a writer living in the great Pacific Northwest. I grew up in Georgia and spent significant time in Chicago. I was educated at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. In 2010, I completed my MFA at Queens University of Charlotte, NC.

My MFA thesis was a collection of linked short stories all set in the brutal 1995 heat wave in Chicago. The collection has been called a "novel" by some and so I am selling it as such.

My chapbook of flash fiction and prose poetry is being released by Tentacles press. That book should be available in Fall of '11 - in time for xmas. Tentacles is a new press devoted to fine literature that creeps out all over the place - look for more from this new venture.

You can find my novella, Silverfish, for sale on Smashwords.com as well as the other e-book retailers. That book is part of a larger work which I am currently working on. It's rather dark, transgressive, and one of the most fun things I've ever written.

Why do you write?

I write to write. There is always another word to follow.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Paul Auster, Stuart Dybek, Don Delillo, Cervantes, Kafka, Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Carver, Nelson Algren, Tom Robbins, T.S. Eliot, Patrick Phillips, Susan Perabo, David Payne, Geoffery Becker, Michael Sadoff, Nicholson Baker, WG Sebald, Eliot Weinberger - the list goes on...

the best way to use this site is to put up stuff that's already been published, and give it new life. This is kind of a showcase compliment to zoe, and doesn't compete at all the way i see it. At least, not at this point. There is no real workshopping at this time, it's just bringing out stuff that was maybe published 6 months ago.. that's such a benefit, and exposes your work to more readers. sorry to run on and on... hope this helps. You loyal guy!!!
