  • About Me

    I have a new collection out now, Big Venerable. It's been published by CCLaP April, 2015.

    I have published one previous collection Why God Why (Love Symbol Press, 2013). If you're interested in owning a copy email me at I can make it happen, almost certainly.

    I also edit Untoward Magazine. I love having the opportunity to publish the writing of people whose work I greatly admire. I'm also happy to troll Fictionaut to solicit work from authors I notice are doing those things I greatly admire.

    Why do you write?

    It's some kind of therapy, I hope.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    If only I could list them all! George Saunders, Kurt Vonnegut, Amelia Gray, Ben Loory, Mathias Svalina, Mark Leidner, Amber Sparks, Adam Levin, Patrick Somerville, Lindsay Hunter and more and more and more.

    As my old Peace Corps buddy Alex "Wild Man" DuPres used to say, "Go nuts, man. Just go fucking wild!"
