Welcome to a place of imagination. What-ifs, strange characters, odd situations. Lists. Poetry. Primarily science fiction and fantasy, though sometimes reality creeps in.
Who am I?
I am a writer who has been writing science fiction and literary novels and short stories for about twenty years. I have completed two novels – both unpublished as of yet – and a number of short stories, some of which have been published in small sf publications.
In my “other life,” I have a Ph.D. in Engineering, and I have taught statistics and decision analysis at the college level for the past few years.
I graduated with an MFA degree in creative writing through at Goddard College.
What do I write?
My projects fall into two main categories. I write relationship stories with a futuristic element, such as a man who marries a woman who turns into a boa constrictor at times, or a family whose daughter is a simulated human being and is eliminated by the mother of the family. I also write urban fairy tales, like a princess whose elf-staff is on strike or a fairy godmother who is on probation.
My current projects are a magic realism novel (Small Infernos) and a near-future dystopian novel (Daylight Saving Time).
This collection is . . .
Humor. Irony. Sometimes whimsical, sometimes serious. Slices of fiction, slices of poetry. Sketches. Some mainstream works, some experimental.
I invite you to eavesdrop on my stream of sketches.
