This is my website. Thanks for looking me up. I want this site to be useful, a place where you can find information about my writing – the books and magazine stories that I’ve produced over the years, as well as news about projects I’m now working on and events that I’ve got planned. There’s also a section for you to contact me, with space for your questions, comments, and your own ideas, if you’d like to post them. The comments you leave, and my responses where appropriate, will be shared with others. Perhaps a running conversation can develop and we all can learn something about the writing life. I hope you enjoy the website. Thanks for visiting.
