Hello world!

August 18, 2009

Welcome to my blog, which I plan to use for many purposes, including random rants and rambling, but my primary purpose here is to introduce myself as a writer and showcase (a euphemism for “shamelessly promote”) my writing. 

My first book of short stories, Rapture Practice, has just been released. Copies are available at  The book is also available through Barnes & Noble Online and, and at select bookstores nationwide.

I will be announcing public readings and book signings as their dates approach One of these will be a reading and signing on September 28, 2009 at 7:30 at the Hub-Bub Showroom in Spartanburg, South Carolina. You can check out the Showroom and its “Hub Culture” at

By the way, I was at The Showroom last night for a fiction reading by Brian Ray, whose new novel Through the Pale Door won the South Carolina First Novel Prize. I was so impressed I bought a copy with money I don’t really have (good literature  does that to me–otherwise I’m pretty frugal) and I can’t wait to read it. 

If you love good literature as much as I do, please help it survive by supporting emerging writers. Thanks for reading. More soon,
