About Me

My debut novel, The Fiction Class, was published in Feb. 2008. This was the culmination of what seemed like, and actually was, years of struggle and aggravation and occasional moments of euphoria. My short stories have been published by a number of literary magazines, most recently I teach at Gotham Writers' Workshop in Manhattan.

Why do you write?

Isabel Allende wrote it so beautifully that I can't do any better than quote her: "I write to overcome sadness, confusion, fear. We have so little control over our circumstances. But by the act of writing, we create a reality that is in a way manageable."

Any favorite authors? Books?

Charles Dickens
Agatha Christie
Richard Russo
And many others.
