  • About Me

    My stories usually involve camels and pizza and video games and so on. I graduated from the Otis College MFA Writing Program, and I've published two collections of short stories: Omelet Shark (2005) and Helicopter Show (2009).

    Why do you write?

    Chew stuff up, process it, and shit something out -- that's natural, right?

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Murphy by Samuel Beckett and White Jacket by Herman Melville are two of my all-time favorites.

    Mike, Thanks for your generous comments regarding the biker gang. They all turned out to be exceptionally nice guys. . .

    Thank you for your kind words, and keep writing about camel pizza and rapacious mind squid. I loved burrito porn.

    Mike, thanks so much for your kind comments on care & danger!

    Alison Earls – Apr 15, 2011

    Mike - you've made my ... so much more than 'day'! I've been very cautious about releasing my fiction into cyberspace and even more so about my audio recordings. But your comment has made it totally worthwhile. Thanks so much!!

    Your comment on "My Night with Sarah Palin" is a real compliment.

    Hi Mike, thanks for reading & commenting on Snowdick. Was a fun piece, glad you liked.

    Hi Mike - thanks for sharing the link to Ice Cream Moose. I laughed uncontrollably.
    "Do I look like a three scoops moose to you?" - awesome. You have a very vibrant imagination :)
    Oh and Breakfast of Champions was also my bible. Too bad they even attempted to make a movie of it; that was tragic.
