Chris is a short story writer and he was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.


Background Information

I was born and eventually came back to Brooklyn, New York. I wrote non-fiction for six years on the old west and was nominated for a Spur Award. I started writing fiction, essays and poetry in 2002. As to other writers, here are my thoughts:

Jorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges has a story, I forget the name. He is certainly a capable and connective writer.

I rather thought well of Burgess' "A Clockwork Orange" his use of Cockney and invented dialect. Not kidding here but I asked Noam Chomsky to go in with me on a deconstruct of the novel and he rather thought it too much work, same with the minefield that is Faulkner's abstractions.

"Of Mice and Men" touched a cord in me. "In Cold Blood" written soundly, could have been more. What started me writing fiction was the oddest combination: "On the Road" and the movie "A Beautiful Mind."

Paul Bowles was and is a short story writer.

Accomplishments

The Pushcart Prize nomination, 2003. Poem of the Month, Survivors' Poetry, August 2009.

Additional Information

My most recent work, "Hazy Shade of Winter," is published as a Amazon Kindle Single.
