Who am I?
I am a college professor by day, writer by night. I am author of The Admirer (formerly titled Dysphoria, Sapphire Books), The Purveyor (coming soon), and Forgive Me If I’ve Told You This Before (Ooligan Press, coming fall 2014). My contemporary romance, Our in Portland, is represented by Dystel and Goderich Literary Management. Also, check out my serial novel, The Eastbank Killer, hosted by the PDXX Collective.
Where have I been?
I have an MA in English from the University of Oregon. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from Smith College, one of the last of the women’s colleges and a great place to meet girls if that’s your inclination. Other formative experiences include a childhood spent exploring the Oregon woods, a job doing nothing but reading the Amherst alumni quarterly, and several years playing pool at dive bars in Northampton, MA. Now live with my beloved wife, Fay, my pug dog, Lord Byron, and my cat, Cyrus the Disemboweler.
What do I like?
