I’m interested in writing about characters on what might be deemed a small scale. Big epic sweeps have their place, but I’m more concerned with telling the stories of people whom you might know and meet and live with.

Current favorite novelist – Richard Russo

Honorable mention – Mark Harris’ Bang the Drum Slowly

Current novel I’m reading – War & Peace (yeah , that one)

Other info on me?

  • I have taught English for 14 years, 11 at the high school level.
  • I am a member of a Catholic association called Youth Apostles, which works with young people in a variety of contexts – parishes, college campuses, schools – to bring them into relationship with Jesus Christ through a strong and vibrant experience of community.  As a lay consecrated member of this group, I made promises of poverty, celibacy, and obedience initially in 1995 and made lifetime promises in 1999.
  • I have seven brothers and sisters.
  • I play a little guitar every now and then.
