I'm a writer of speculative fiction who loves the great outdoors and animals of all kinds.

Background Information

I've been writing most of my life, professionally since 1992.  I write a semi-regular blog on Wordpress.  My latest book, WEATHERCOCK, will be out shortly, although this time around I've chosen to self-publish rather than in the traditional manner.  A collection of my short fiction, "Darling Wendy and Other Stories" was published in 2008 by Seventh Circle Books.  I've written four media tie-in novels -- Star Trek - Ice Trap (in collaboration as L.A. Graf); Star Trek - Shell Game; Quantum Leap - Search and Rescue; and Earth 2.  My work has appeared in AMOSKEAG:  The Journal of Southern New Hampshire University, 5.5BW - Stories and Poems, and NEWN Magazine.  My non-fiction articles have appeared in STRIDES (the magazine of the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association) and ASPCA's "Animal Watch."

I am constantly influenced by writers old and new.  Some favorites:  J.M. Barrie, Jonathan Carroll, Stephen King, Barbara Hambly, Harlan Ellison, Neil Gaiman.   


"Darling Wendy" - Winner, New England Writers Network 2002 Short Story Contest

"Darling Wendy and Other Stories" received a nomination to receive the 2009 Connecticut Book Award.

In 2010 I was proud to serve as the Fiction Judge in the Darien Library Teen Writing Contest. I will reprise that role in 2011.

Additional Information

My new book, WEATHERCOCK, will soon be available. I have just submitted a story to FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION. I am working on several short stories and a novel, CALL OF BLOOD.
