I write novels, poetry, essays.

My work includes twenty novels, short story collections, poetry, and essays. My novel Gabriela and The Widow was a finalist for the Montaigne Medal. My collection of essays--What Do I Know? Wisdom Essays is coming in September 2021 from Sidekick Press. I work with other writers three days a week using the techniques I and my co-author Robert J. Ray devised--How To Make Good Writing Better. We co-wrote The Weekend Novelist Writes a Mystery.
