About meI've written two novels, five award-winning feature-length screenplays, and hundreds of poems and songs. My novel DEVELOPING MINDS: AN AMERICAN GHOST STORY and my screenplay A NOBLE TRUTH will be published by Laughing Fire Press in 2015, and my short story A SACRIFICE TO THE GOD OF THE BLUES appeared in 34thParallel Magazine's November 2014 issue.

My work often explores themes of alienation and misery as human constructions that can be overcome through self-understanding and the acceptance of suffering.
