When I was about six, I defaced my copy of Stuart Little. I didn't like the ending, so I rewrote it, right there in pen on the last page. I've been a writer ever since--and I still have that copy of Stuart Little.
I've worked as a septic system tester, a lifeguard, a school uniform salesman, an editor, a freelance writer, and currently I'm a Professor of Creative Writing and English, and every one of those jobs taught me a lot about writing.
I write young adult novels, a Southern Gothic paranormal series, short stories, and writing guides, and I've had stories published in literary journals like Copper Nickel, The Cream City Review, Eleven Eleven, and The Southeast Review. I've been fortunate to receive grants from the Jerome Foundation and the Minnesota State Arts Board.
