One of founding editors of Ploughshares. Have an MFA in fiction from Iowa and have published poetry in Ploughshares, Beloit Poetry Journal, Antioch Review and others.
But I'm all about fiction now.
Because I wake up at four am having just dreamed about a high school band marching through a corn field, or having suddenly remembered something I did years ago that was so off the map that I'm lucky to be alive.
Those are the seeds of my most recent stories.
Raymond Carver, Roddy Doyle, and Alice Munrow
Favorite book is Cormac McCarthy's All The Pretty Horses
Any lover of McCarthy's a friend of mine.
I guess the invite finally made it. Welcome to the party.
