I’m a writer – a novelist, blogger, business writer, book reviewer – a multi-purpose scribe. My first novel, Pepperland, will be published by Running Meter Press, an imprint of Big Earth Publishing of Boulder, CO – coming May 21, 2013. What’s it about? Think the Ramones meet Jane Fonda meets Bill Gates. I’m fiction editor of Hunger Mountain – a Journal of the Arts in Montpelier, Vermont. I’m also a professional voiceover talent—which means that I get to talk big for happy radio, TV and corporate clients. I’m a contributing essayist for WUWM Milwaukee Public radio which is really cool. And I’m a reviewer for the Washington Independent Review of Books. What else? I have an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and I lead an aging rock ‘n roll band, which means that I believe that, with a guitar in my hand, just about anything is possible.
