- About My Library
- I used to a buy a lot of contemporary American fiction, but don't so much anymore. Most of the recent books I've bought have been fiction chapbooks, self-produced books, and very small press books.
- About Me
- I live near Seattle. I like reading. Right now I'm reading very old books and current small press books.
I am the author of eight works of fiction including The Double E and Virility Rituals of North American Teenage Boys. My novel, Shoot the Buffalo, was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award and was awarded an American Book Award by the Before Columbus Foundation in 2006.
Recent fiction has been published The Chicago Review, Opium Magazine, TRNSFR, and MonkeyBicycle.
