I'll be away for a while, finishing touches on a novel....
My short fiction and a few poems have been published in literary journals and anthologies in the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada.
My wife, MaryAnne Kolton, is also a writer. You can catch some of her insightful interviews with authors at the Los Angeles Review of Books.
Mishima, Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, Joan Didion, Philip Roth, Dostoevski, Cormac McCarthy, Sandra Cisneros, Graham Greene, Carson McCullers, Christopher Isherwood, Elmore Leonard, many, many others.
Favorite book, Blood Meridian.
