In Short

When I was 13, my school library published a classmate's book, and I realized I wouldn't be satisfied reading great adventures; I had to write them, too.

I earned my B.A. in English from Hofstra University and my M.A. in creative writing from Queens College-CUNY, wanting to be the next great private eye novelist. Instead, I became a teacher, editor, moderator, poet, reviewer, and my best-known fiction is short stories about 1930s aviator C.J. Stone.

Nothing has quite gone as planned, but that's what I enjoy most as I write after all, stretching myself, being surprised. In that spirit, this blog has never had a schedule, but in its now-more-than-ten years, I haven't let a month pass without a post.

Happy reading.
