I was born in Berkeley and have lived mostly around the San Francisco bay area. I have a BA from Stanford in creative writing and an MA from Columbia in contemporary literature. I am married and have three grown children. I have mostly earned my way with jobs in technical writing. A few years ago I stopped technical writing to devote full time to fiction.
I write short stories, some experimental forms, and occasionally verse, but I think of myself mostly as a novelist, and have written four novels. Two have been serialized in a small literary magazine and several excerpts from them have appeared separately. 70 items of fiction and a few poems have appeared in literary or general magazines. I occasionally publish photography.
I have also published technical reports and popular articles about networking and application of computers to text processing. I published a book on Macintosh applications with Wiley in 1985 and a translation of the Flemish novels The Enemy and The Danger by Jos Vandeloo in 1986.

The Danger: Alfred Benting tries to flee death from radiation poisoning by escaping with a fellow mortally-ill patient from the clinic of the research Center for Nuclear Fission where they and a third man all suffered an undescribed accident. The novel is his fears, scattered impressions of his surroundings, and bits of memory of his past that he chooses not to dwell on — he is a man who has fled life as he now flees death.
