I was Writer in Residence for the month of August 2011 for Necessary Fiction (scroll down to August; and this is a link to a piece of my novel-in-progress). Steve Himmer, editor of Necessary Fiction, has this nice essay on my work.


My novel The River Gods is now available from Amazon as an e-book. My first novel Still Life with Insects will also be published as an e-book only some time before April 2012 by Dzanc Books. Here's a review on All Things Considered of The River Gods (published by FC2).I've published one other novel I Know Many Songs, But I Cannot Sing (which was recently brought out in an Arabic translation), and two books of fiction exercises,  The 3 A.M. Epiphany and The 4 A.M. Breakthrough. If you want a teacher's examination copy of The 3 A.M. Epiphany or The 4 A.M. Breakthrough, click here.  My Goodreads page has dozens of reviews of my books.
