This is a continuation of a blog that I’ve been keeping since September 2002, of divers subjects and cacophanies. So, about me? Born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1973, 12 years of Catholic school, B.A. in English from the College of Wooster, MFA in poetry writing from the University of Virginia. Author of two poetry chapbooks: The Black Hare and Atari Ecologues. I’ve also released a 165-page poem, The Stations, for free in the wilds of the Internet with a pretty loose creative commons license. You can download it here or here.
My first short story collection, Skinny Dipping in the Lake of the Dead, came out from Small Beer Press in June 2006. If you’re curious about my short fiction and the book, you can download the book as a “fun-size” edition (about a third of it) for free here.
On November 24, 2009, Spectra will publish my novel Total Oblivion, More or Less.
My literary agent is Colleen Lindsay of FinePrint Literary Management.
Married to Kristin Livdahl, human being and writer extraordinaire. Saga of the Raiding Team is a story of hers I have posted here. We have 3 cats (Tora, Kochan, and Piper) and 1 dog (Gambit). For the day job, I manage a proofreading/copy editing department at an advertising agency.
Feel free to email and say hi.
