About Me

Artist, writer, editor.

Why do you write?

Stories and poems usually start with character & place. Elmore Leonard's advice about letting dialogue lead works for me too.

Any favorite authors? Books?

John Crowley's 'Little, Big'. M. John Harrison's trilogy 'Light', 'Nova Swing', 'Empty Space', and his short story collection 'Things That Never Happen'. Cormac McCarthy's 'No Country' & 'Suttree'. William Gibson's 'Pattern Recognition'. Robert B. Parker's Spenser series.
