Have you ever been commerically or self-published?

I've published five academic books on Jewish mysticism and messianism. My debut novel, JOURNAL OF A UFO INVESTIGATOR, is scheduled to be out from Viking Press in February 2011.

Do you have a website you would like to share with the group?

What type of writing are you most interested in?

Novels.

What are you currently working on?

The sequel to UFO INVESTIGATOR, to be entitled THE COLOR OF ELECTRUM. Also a novel called THE MENDING, about a woman psychiatrist in the year 2000, one of whose patients begins to recover memories and dream fragments of a 17th-century Messiah.

Introduction

For many years I was a religious studies professor. But there's things I wanted to say about faith and illusion, and the loss of them, that academic writing can't convey. That's why I turned to writing fiction.
