My third novel The River Gods was published in the fall of 2009 by FC2 (see excerpts at a page on this site, and at, Segue, and Double Room).  The 4 A.M. Breakthrough, a follow-up to The 3 A.M. Epiphany, was published in January 2009 by Writer's Digest Books (see some exercises from this book).  I have also published two novels, Still Life With Insects and I Know Many Songs, But I Cannot Sing (see reviews of Still Life and Songs), and a collection of fiction exercises, The 3 A.M. Epiphany, which was published in 2005 (see reviews, introduction, exercises, or languages compared).  I am also at work on a book of travel memories.  I've received Guggenheim, Whiting, and NEA fellowships, and had residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Millay, Yaddo, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown.  My fiction has been anthologized in The Best American Short Stories and The Four-Way Reader.   I studied at Carleton College and at City College of New York (with Donald Barthelme, Grace Paley, Mark Mirsky, and Frederic Tuten).  I have also taught at the American University in Cairo and Ohio University.
