I have spent most of my life wandering around the world writing my rather esoteric novels and stories. I have been a magician's assistant in East Africa, a fisherman in the south seas, a smuggler in India. I have ridden motorcycles up the center of Australia and from California to Panama, gone down the Amazon from Peru to the Atlantic, taken a canoe along jungle rivers between Mexico and Guatemala--sleeping in Mayan ruins and Indian villages--and lived with Moro pirates in the Sulu Sea, plus much more. My stories and novels are, I believe, as adventurous and strange as my life. The Washington Post Book World, in its review of "Mexico Trilogy," compared my work to that of Garcia Marquez, Robbe-Grillet, Marguerite Duras, and Severo Sarduy. I have been writing what can loosely be called Magical Realism, Surrealism, or Expressionism, since I was a child.
Four of my novels have been published by FC2/Florida State University--"Maya" in 1992, "The Ethiopian Exhibition" in 1994, "Mexico Trilogy" in 1996, and "The Wilderness" in 2000. My short stories have appeared in a variety of small magazines, including Black Ice, Santa Monica Review, and three anthologies from FC2 ( "Avant Pop", 1993, "Degenerate Prose", 1995, and "In the Slipstream: An FC2 Reader" in 1999). I have begun exploring the world of self-publishing and e-books, with some pleasure: I can now design, create, explore how books can look in our digital age, and offer them here at Amazon.
