A multi-published, award-winning short-story writer, I have been an editor, a writing conference presenter, member of the National Book Critics Circle, a university professor, writing contest judge, columnist for the Writing Beyond 'Good,' Missouri Review series of craft articles, a graphic art and fabrication company marketeer, a roofer, potato-chip-packer, law office administrator, fast-food worker, costume designer, tinker-tailor-soldier-spy . . .
The power of story informs all my work, literary and visual.
Art, in the service of story.
