I write short fiction, novels, and plays. I love the worlds I can create with words. It’s always a surprise to discover the lives of the people in these worlds, and I’m grateful to lose myself in their stories.
I live in Tigard, Oregon, where life is greener than green.
While taking a break from work on my novels for a couple of years due to illness, I turned to the very short form fiction I call ‘twitter tales.’ Known by many names, very short stories, microfiction, or nanofiction, among others, this form derives from the constraints of the 140-character limit for a single tweet. I've just published my latest collection of them, 'Between Blinks, Artfully Short Stories.' This book is a selection of over 300 quick tales, each complete and unique, within the length of a tweet! It's available on Amazon in paperback and ebook editions.
I have a couple of novels in progress. My first novel manuscript, "Seeking Sequitur," remains in first draft form. My second, "Riversbend Elegy for guns, sax, and harp," is in a final revisions phase, and I hope to publish it sometime this year. I also have a third novel well along in progress, "Flying Through The Air With No Particular Ease."
