About meI write. Therefore I am. I have published my poetry and short stories, once worked as the poetry editor of the Cream City Review, a national literary magazine, and used to write a column for North Western Lines, a Railroad National Historical Society Magazine. I have a novel in the works, but hey, who the hell doesn't. I'm also broke and in debt up to my eyeballs. But that's the american way, right?

I now own Xenith Booksellers, LLC in Milwaukee, WI. I have 800 sq ft and 11,000 titles for sale, and all are also online.

About my libraryRebuilding it after selling all my books at a garage sale many years ago. Just bought 32,000 books from a used bookstore that lost its lease. Gonna cherry pick the ones I want to keep and sell the rest. Just begun listing them. So so many boxes...
