Here's a blog post about a collection of short stories I'm writing, my winter retreat, and the perils of revising thirteen stories in four days. It concludes with a couple bittersweet quotes on writing.

I was interviewed by Lillie Craw to promote the Gridlords reading this Saturday! In the interview Lillie asks me some great, smart questions and then I try to answer those questions by way of Wordsworth, Jason Shiga, Hemingway, David Foster Wallace and Foucault. Weird.

If you've ever spent some time with me at a bar, I've probably told you the story of meeting Guns n' Roses when I was fourteen. Well, I've finally written this story into a personal essay to be performed with a slide show and music. Come join me, Joel Statz, Cameron Hawkey, Ann Matsushima Chiu and Shiela Laufer for GRIDLORDS 15 next Saturday, July 27th at 8 pm. 

Attached is the event poster and short interview with Gridlordian Lillie Craw. Enjoy and I hope to see you at the show!!

I'm so happy to announce that I have completed both my MFA and MA and I will be teaching at Pacific University in the fall. Hooray! In addition, I hope to continue my work as an editor and writer. I have a new website that provides information on editing services and gives updates on my current writing projects. In addition, the website showcases a weekly blog that will offer concise suggestions/exercises on all stages of the writing process. Check out the website, pass it along, and let me know what you think!
