About the Author
I am a writer of mainstream fiction, although my style leans in a slightly grittier direction than most conventional mainstream; my work has been categorized as urban fiction, noir without the detectives, and in some cases even dark comedy and horatian satire.
I 've worked on staff for several entertainment periodicals (Vox, Upfront Magazine, The City Crow, The Essex County Crier) writing commentaries, reviews, and informative pieces on the art community, as well as founded and headed up the (original) literary periodical New Graffiti.
During my time with NG I gained valuable experience not only writing, but editing and working behind the scenes of the publishing industry. It also granted me the wonderful opportunity of working with and managing an incredible staff of writers and gave me the enormous pleasure of landing interviews with such names as John Martin of Black Sparrow Press (publisher responsible for discovering acclaimed poet and author Charles Bukowski), and Steve Albini of 80's/90's punk band Big Black, and recording engineer (Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Pixies, etc). It was also during this time that I wrote several additional novels, two - The Garden and Ice and a Curious Man of which are currently published and available. There are other novels of mine currently legally published and in circulation, but most certainly not with my blessing. That being said, thank you for your interest.
