Dirk van Nouhuys


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.
