Biography

I call my website "Stories from an Unexpected Universe" because that is how my stories appear and come into being, arising out of what is familiar and unknown at the same time. Storytelling is an ancient tradition. My hope is for the stories and books I write to bring you a good read, a respite from the frenetic pace we sometimes live, and most of all, a path into other ways of seeing.

My short stories have appeared in Kzine, Mad Scientist Journal, Over My Dead Body!, NewMyths, Aurora Wolf, Alien Dimensions, and T. Gene Davis’s Speculative Blog, among others. I was a finalist in the Hollywood SCRIPTOID Screenwriter’s Feature Challenge for a script about a mother seeking the disabled child she had abandoned, in “Second Chances.” My high fantasy book MARI was a finalist in the ListenUp Audiobook competition. Two short stories-- “Calliope” and “Stopover”-- have been featured on The Strange Recital podcast in Woodstock, NY.

After working on both coasts, in Texas, and overseas, I now call the historic and beautiful Hudson River Valley region my home, and it pleases me no end to live not very far from where Rod Serling grew up and Jane Roberts encountered Seth.
