About Me

I teach high school English in Chicago. I also have a lovely wife and a large, murderous orange tabby cat named Cheever. My stories have been published places like this - Hobart, Quick Fiction, Whiskey Island, Keyhole, Chicago Public Radio and a slew of others. My two favorite things are sports and literature, which makes me sort of an odd duck, but it's all good; trust me...

Why do you write?

You, you sexy, crazy, nuanced, acrimonious son of a such and such!

Any favorite authors? Books?

Richard Yates, Raymond Carver, Joy Williams, Amy Hempel, Charles D'Ambrosio, Tennessee Williams, J.D. Salinger, Tobias Wolff, Edward Albee, Hemingway...
