About Me

Pretty out of shape these days. I like dogs.

Why do you write?

I always mess up the story when I tell it out loud.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Tim O'Brien - The things they carried, Going after Cacciato; Sherman Alexie - Reservation Blues, The Lone Ranger and Tonto fistfight in heaven; William Faulkner - Light in August; Joseph Heller - Catch 22; Cormac McCarthy - The Road; Douglas Adams - The restaurant at the end of the universe; JRR Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings; Stephen King - The Long Walk

Just read your piece in Robot Melon. Nice.

Thanks for your kind words about Dachaue/Oktoberfest. Really nice to hear. I'm working on some longer pieces these days and will be using your work as inspiration. Been doing so much flash it's scary to go back to longer pieces.
