What, about me? Hell I don’t know, I’m not interesting. By day I’m a PhD research scientist weathering the constant rounds of mergers and layoffs and trying to remember how to be a person again after surviving grad school. In addition to subjecting my writing to one rejection after another, you can find me gathering to myself as many different sharp and pointies as possible — you can never have too many, as a certain someone often says — and searching for the perfect hiking trail, archery range or single malt Scotch.

My stories have been published in all the places noted on my Short Fiction page, and now I’m having a go at getting my novel published. I see agents and publishers going on about how “Oh, you have to have a platform so you can connect with readers and establish your brand,” blah blah blah. Ridiculous I say, but what do I know? Thus all this.
