I Created This Fictional Character on Instagram
Instagram lends itself to fiction and I just created my second character on the social network. Follow it if you want some silliness sprinkled with all the selfies in your Instagram feed. Sometimes I use crutches, or what I call quadsteppers , but I don't w...

My Greatest Professional Accomplishment Was a Bureaucratic Miracle
When we achieve our all-time greatest professional accomplishment, we know it right away. Like Dr. Carl June developing a novel way to treat cancer, Mark Sanchez not throwing an interception, and me breaking through bureaucracy in the U.S. federal governmen...

A Book Party: All It Takes Is One

Lessons From My MFA Creative Writing Program

Talk To Me: Me, My Dad, and Foul-Tasting Medicine
