About Me

I wrote a book that people tell me they really whip right through. Angels Carry the Sun (Lilly Press, Sep 2010) is now available. Lilly Press nominated it for the PEN/Faulkner Award and a Pushcart prize (Chapter Seven). ***Also, I am tech-challenged and have no idea who is faving my stuff on here--sorry.

The Midwest Book Review lists Angels Carry the Sun on the Fiction Shelf between a book called Witchgrass and another called At the Concord of the Rivers.

Here's a review by A cappella Zoo

Why do you write?

Life. Because I can't seem to stop.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Dead people. And John Banville, Jane Smiley....

More on your excellent Banana Republic:

‘Jesus said: “There went forth two men to sell apples. The one chose to sell the peel of the apple for its weight in gold, caring nought for the substance of the apples. The other desired to give the apples away, receiving only a little bread for his journey. But men bought the peel of the apples for its weight in gold, caring nought for him who was fain to give to them, nay even despising him.”’

Quoted in Indries Shah, Learning How to Learn, p. 141
