I aim to tell stories that I would want to read: meaningful, fun, page-turning, and filled with characters I care about. I have no strong allegiances to genre; my writing is a mix of mystery, suspense, and literary. I believe, as Faulkner said, that the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself alone make good writing.
I prefer to write novels but I enjoy writing and reading short stories as well as non-fiction histories. My works include: Sink, Steepest Descents, Spectacle, Into the Red, White, & Blue, and Under The Radar.
My life’s work is not writing, but as a clean energy entrepreneur building Carbon Lighthouse.
My favorite novels, in order, are:
The Great Gatsby
The Catcher in the Rye
One Hundred Years of Solitude
Grapes of Wrath
When She was Good
The Adventures of Augie March
A Farewell to Arms
