Bio/Mission

I got a literature PhD from Tufts University in 2002 and then decided I would prefer not to. Since then my fiction has appeared in West Wind Review, Mad Hatters’ Review, Harp & Altar, A cappella Zoo, Pear Noir!, Lamination Colony, Prick of the Spindle, DIAGRAM, Sous Les Pavés, Sein und Werden, 3:AM Magazine, SmokeLong Quarterly, Word Riot, Juked, and elsewhere. I've been twice nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and my short play, The Liquidation of the Cohn Estate, was produced in the 2009 Boston Theater Marathon. My novel, HUMAN WISHES / ENEMY COMBATANT, was published in January 2012 by Say It With Stones: http://sayitwithstones.com/
