What is your favorite writing saying?

"What no wife of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out the window." ~Burton Rascoe

What is your favorite book on writing?

A blank notebook.

What do you write?

Darkly humorous fiction. Just completed my first novel, a fantasy thriller, under my nom de plume. About to start a noir-ish YA novel for adult readers.

What do you read?

Humorous fiction and supernatural thrillers, mostly. Some fave authors: Robert McCammon, Christopher Moore, Joe R. Lansdale, Torsten Krol and Steve Hockensmith.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

I once was on an elevator with Paul Simon, and stood in a Whole Foods next to Fabio. Coincidence?


I am a recent transplant to Philly, previously of NY, LA and Ann Arbor. I have painfully morphed from screenwriter into novelist. Also discovered meaning of life; sold it on eBay for $23.95.
