I’m a novelist and short story writer. My second novel, A Town of Empty Rooms, has just been published by Counterpoint Press. I’m also the author of Like Normal People (Houghton Mifflin, 2000). My short story collection, Refund, is also forthcoming from Counterpoint Press. You can find links to some of my short stories on my Short Stories page. Some of my nonfiction essays and articles appear on the Nonfiction page. Readings and Events will be listed on the News page. If you’re a writing student, you might want to look at my On Writing page, where I’ve posted some of the handouts I use in my classes, as well as some insights on becoming a writer.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to write me through the Contact page.
