I love to read and I love to write: literary flash and short fiction, non-fiction, dark speculative fiction, and dark satire stories. I write the stories I would read, and I read the stories I wish I’d written. Some of my favorite authors include: Jennifer Egan, Shirley Jackson, Ken Liu, David Mitchell, Stuart O’Nan, Gillian Flynn, Ted Chiang, Steven Amsterdam, Cormack McCarthy, Sequoia Nagamatsu, Jonathan Hickman, Emily St. John Mandel, Robert Repino, Denis Johnson, and many others.
