Fiction

Since the mid-1980s, I have been writing fiction, short stories to start with, then novels. I have completed five novels (literary and speculative fiction). Two of my novels were finalists in the Chesterfield Writer’s Film Project: The Cell (1995) and Wasteland (1998).

In December 2014, I finally took the plunge into self-publishing. Wasteland is available in Kindle format at Amazon.

I loved this book! The story is engrossing, the characters are real people, and the future they inhabit is all too scarily possible. The use of unique slang, the technologies and tech, and the dystopian themes made me think of William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Suzanne Collins, and Hugh Howey. The writing is so tight and gritty just as it is with these authors and the story just as disturbing and thought-provoking. I heartily recommend it! — Amazon review

I am currently working on another novel.

I have also written a collection of short stories. The following stories have been published in the literary small press in the U.S.: “Everett Holly Goes Hunting” (Nowhere, a micro-press publication, 1994, Los Angeles, CA); “Tryptych: Los Angeles” (Exquisite Corpse, Andrei Codrescu, editor, no. 43, 1993, Baton Rouge, LA); “Five Variations” (stet, Fall-Winter 1992-1993, Vol. 12, Cambridge, MA); “Outing” (Rohwedder; International Journal of Literature and Art, vol. 5, 1990, Los Angeles); “Rapid Transit” (Exquisite Corpse, op. cit., combined issue nos. 1-5, 1989).

From 1990 to 1992, I was a contributing editor of Rohwedder; International Journal of Literature and Art. Rohwedder published world literature in its original language (e.g., German, Spanish, Danish, Polish and French) accompanied by a translation. Rohwedder published the work of unknown writeres as well as some stars including Peter Schneider and Thomas E. Kennedy. The journal also showcased international visual artists.
