I am an emerging fiction writer living in Chicago. While I am a Luddite, I am using the forum because I love to meet new people, especially fellow artists, and learn new things.

Anyone interested in reading my published work can access it through the link under the My Web Site header on this blog. My short story "Life Goes on Without Me" recently won an honorable mention from Conclave: A Journal of Chracter's 2009 Fiction Contest. I am currently working on a novel, new short stories, and a creative non-fiction essay. My friend T.E. Russell has encouraged me to write a screenplay.

And as always, I am still submitting, submitting, submitting.

I look forward to meeting and reading from you.

Working on Student Papers (sigh)

Unless an artist is independently wealthy; has a trust fund; or strikes it big like Stephen King, Erica Jong, or Philip Roth; a day job is a necessity.

Today I will be reading the last of my students essays to provide comments and guidance; however, I will be breaking them up into manageable numbers under a deadline. Here's to writing later tonight.

Prayers and/or good thoughts to the Chilean people.

Fractured Atlas's Blog Post about My Work and Me.

I Am Back

As you can notice, I haven't posted to this blog for a couple of years. However, because of Fractured Atlas's blog post about my work and me, I plan to post on a frequent basis.

I look forward to hearing from you.
