About Me

My short works have been published in Eclectica, The Sun magazine, and Bluestem. I'm also the author of many book indexes, and an encyclopedia entry. Sometimes I am on Twitter.

Why do you write?

I have no idea, I spent years trying to quit.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Dickens and Woolf and Charlotte Bronte and Shakespeare, back when, to begin with. Chekhov (stories and plays). Some works by George Sand, Flaubert, Zola, Louise Erdrich, Amin Maalouf, Arnold Bennett, Muriel Spark, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Joyce, Cortazar, Julian Barnes, and Zadie Smith. P.G. Wodehouse. Alison Bechdel. Lynda Barry. Lots of plays, occasional poetry. Was frustrated by Eugenides' The Marriage Plot, enjoyed the first half of Bachmann's Malina more than the second.

Mother's Day: Hilarious comment about turning to the police as the new representatives of authority.

Hi Sara, welcome to Fictionaut! I'm originally from upstate NY also (are you?) I really enjoyed your first story you posted, thanks to Matt R. for bringing my attention to it.

Hey Sara,

Cool about your sister. Has much of her work been produced? This job is my first venture into the world of theatre (box office), but hopefully not my last.

Congrats on finishing the novel! Hope to be able to read it soon. Looking forward to reading more of your work!

Glad you are pleased by the surprise. Welcome to Fictionaut. Congratulations on finishing a novel. No small thing.
