I live in Woodstock, New York with my wife Cheryl and my daughter Lachlan. My first book, a Young Adult fantasy novel, "Indigo" was just released (early 2013) and I'm hard at work on the second book in the series.
I also write screenplays and had one optioned as a development project, by an actor/friend who brought it to the TriBeCa Film Festival a couple years ago as part of the All Access program.
I love science fiction and comedy, and all sorts of escapism -- am just finishing the last of the Game of Thrones books currently out -- but I also love David Foster Wallace, Franzen, Junot Diaz, Hilary Mantel, Jennifer Egan and a host of new authors. I'm always looking for book recommendations, if you have any...

Indigo: Ink to Blood
What you don't know can kill you. Indigo -- 19 and Japanese -- doesn't know how she came to be on the street in New York City, rolled up in a rug and left to die. And she doesn't know how her memory was erased or why her body is carpeted in tattoos. All she knows for certain is that assassins are after her and that no place is safe.
