Thanks for being here.
Take a look around, to see writing old and new, info about the release of my short story collection, links to great writing-related sites and blogs, and under "ideas/advice," various stuff including travel writing tips, punctuation cheat-sheets, an article about balancing writing and teaching, and a speech full of lofty encouragement for English majors.
