Background Information

After 20 years of writing I finally published my first novel Whackers.  Whackers is an edgy, different story about men and women and their awkward quest to relate to each other.  I like different, edgy stories and try to write the same.  I don't like reading the same story over and over again which seems to prevade the fiction marketplace.  My influences are Tom Robbins, Woody Allen, John Irving, Richard Russo, and Anne Tyler.  Authors who are willing to take a chance, write something original, and most of all show how humorous our toils and tribulations of everyday life can be.

Birth Place
Burlington, VT Chittenden

My novel Whackers and three poems published

Additional Information

Working on my second novel hopefully a followup published novel to Whackers.
