About Me

My novel, Blood of a Stone, is forthcoming from Tuscany Press in the fall of 2014. Set in first century Palestine, it's the story of a slave named Demetrios who murders his abusive Roman master and creates a new life and new identity in Galilee. When Demetrios discovers his secrets have been exposed, he sets out to silence those who have betrayed him but finds love and redemption instead. Note: This novel was a semi-finalist for the Santa Fe Writers Project Prize, a semi-finalist for the Faulkner Pirate's Alley Novel Prize, and a finalist for the Tuscany Novel Prize.

Work-in-progress: THE DOUBLE SUN, literary novel about a family of downwinders (people adversely affected by radioactive fallout from atomic testing in Nevada). Story spans almost 30 years and explores how their lives were closely intertwined with the nuclear industry.

MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts
