  • About Me

    I have been a writer of sorts all my life, and a writing instructor for all my adult life.

    My first novel is finished, and I'm working on my second. Both fall into the literary fiction category.

    My agent left the business, so I am seeking representation.

    Why do you write?

    These stories in my head need somewhere to go. They take up too much space.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Maggie, thanks ever so much for the reading and faves on "The Color of Mangoes" and "Sand." You made my day.

    Maggie! Thanks for your comment on Elephant! I love them too -- knew I had to write about elephants when that animal prompt came, though this started as a comedy with the image of them trying to jump... Hey, I see you have The Crying of Lot 49 as a fave here, and Adrian Mole, and Confederacy of Dunces! I knew there is a reason I'm following you... :) Nice to meet you at 52|250 and here! Look forward to more and more...

    Thanks for reading "Pleiku Jacket," Maggie. I keep thinking about "Stations of the Cross"--it makes me think of Muriel Spark's The Mandelbaum Gate and Robert Stone's more recent novel with similar ideas Damascus Gate. I hope you are doing something more with it. And if not, it's a great short piece.

    So glad to find you here, Maggie! Looking forward to seeing your work. And big thanks for the fave on "Classmates"!
