How often do you write? What time of day/night is your best writing time?

Monday-Friday, 9am to noon.

What style of writing do you prefer - creative non-fiction (includes, essay, memoir, feature articles), fiction, other?

I only enjoy writing short stories. I've tried novels, plays, poetry and essays but they either seem like a chore or didn't interest me enough.

Do you have any finished writing work you're happy with? Have you published?

I self-published Ginger Snaps: Photos & Stories of redheaded queers in 2012. I'm editing my second story collection now.

Fill in the statement: "The one thing I most want to do about my writing is. . .

to write it and edit it into as good a shape as I can.

Do you experience writer's block? If so, what sort of motivation would help you?



I write gay romantic and erotic short stories and plan (pro bono) literary events. Continuing literary events I organize are Word Week (Noe Valley's annual literary festival), Noe Valley Authors Festival and author events for Magnet San Francisco.
