My short story "A Closer Walk With Thee" appeared in the October 2009 issue of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. It features forensic scientist Sean McKinney, the protagonist of my, as yet, unpublished novel.
"Downsizing" was a finalist in The World's Best Short-short Story Contest and appeared in Vol. 25 No. 1 of The Southeast Review. It's a short-short, a format I love to write. One of my professors at Northwestern, Sandi Wisenberg, taught me how to write short-shorts. It's not as easy as it looks. As in poetry, each sentence carries the weight of a chapter and every word carries the weight of a sentence. I think writing short-shorts and poetry has improved my longer fiction. I'm making more conscious word choices. So here's a poem, "Passive Aggression."
Way back in 2003 I attended the Antioch Writer's Conference and while I was there I wrote my first and only science fiction story, "The Wind." Let me know what you think.
