Fiction & Poetry

You cannot create experience, You must undergo it Albert Camus

i studied fine arts in creative writing and fiction, at pacific university. my mentors were mike magnuson, pam houston, pete fromm, bonnie joe campbell, and david long.

after dozens of writing workshops during 2006-2013 I began to admire literature. i studied with authors who taught at harvard, grubstreet, provincetown center for fine arts, and others, with award-winning writers and editors like steve almond and tom jenks.

for a year i served as an editor at the review review. my memberships include a one year writing residency at the the writers room of boston, where I worked on an early draft of my first novel.

i've written over twenty short stories, published a few, and received more than 300 rejections.

novel and publishing studio

In 2014 I started a studio to explore new ways of interactive publishing. A work-in-progress, like my novel, but early prototypes look good

My current novel, Light & Lovely, that I started writing in 2010 is currently in final draft.
