Who am I and why should you care?

Probably you shouldn't, but since you are here, I am a writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy stories, with a few now starting to see print. I'm also a partner in a multimedia software company, a husband, and a father of three children with a fourth on the way.

This site is very much under-construction, but I got tired of looking at the default home page and thought I should put something up.

What have I published?

My first professional sale, this story won first place in the Writers of the Future and appears in Writers of the Future Volume XII. When I met Tim Powers, his response was, "I thought that story had been written by someone older." Kevin Anderson's response was, "I remember that story. Boy was it long." With ringing endorsements like that, no wonder it was winner!

Upcomming in Marrion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine. I don't know when, but I've been apreaing in their comming soon section for the last couple of issues. This is a story set during a performace of Wagner's Ring Cycle.

Appearing in "Silver Birch, Blood Moon" edited by Ellen Datlow and Teri Windling. Schuduled to be realesed in spring of '98. Another Jewish fantasy story featuring Rabbi Meltzer from The Unhappy Golem.

Appearing in Realms of Fantasy. The contract says April or June, but I've been told not to trust it. The magazine I sent it to before Realms of Fantasy called this one "a self-indulgent wallow in a trendy woe," so consider yourself warned. It is a ghost story set in Sarejevo.

Comming Soon! Maybe.
