I have an English BA from Rutgers, taught school, worked for the Post Office and am currently retired. I've been getting published since 1982 in many different venues. My work has ranged from short stories, poetry, essays, journalism, reviews, profiles, monologues, skits, plays, and outright rants.
My influences for this collection of flash fiction are Ray Bradbury, Rod Serling, Stephen King, and Franz Kafka. I also have many humorous themed pieces that are influenced by Larry David and Bruce Jay Friedman, among others. I work better in the flash fiction shorter form and have over four hundred such pieces. My theater pieces have been performed in New York and New Jersey over the past fifteen years.
I am currently in four writing critique groups and a number of book discussion groups.
