Writing fiction and poetry–and whatever else, including marketing copy–alongside the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers. Where I live is known as the Upper Colorado River Basin, one of the ten most endangered rivers in America. The picture above is of the Flaming Gorge reservoir in Wyoming, which is along another major Colorado River tributary, the Green River. An in-progress novel, WHILE BUTCH ROBS TRAINS, is set in the Green River Basin of Colorado and Utah.
I grew up in New Hampshire but wound up here in Colorado, where I put myself through college, raised a son, and now live with two dogs, two cats, and one nice guy. I enjoy all the standard Colorado outdoor activities.
My literary short fiction and poetry appear in Confrontation, Phoebe, Cimarron Review, South Dakota Review, Adirondack Review, Roanoke Review, Literary Mama, Artful Dodge, and in many other journals. I taught writing at the University of Colorado-Boulder for several years and more recently I’ve tried to earn a living writing marketing copy and doing social media for Microsoft and other software companies. As the 2011-2012 George Bennett Fellow/Writer-in-Residence at Phillips Exeter Academy, I mainly focused on the WHILE BUTCH ROBS TRAINS manuscript. I also assembled a poetry chapbook from existing work. That became Wild Thing in Our Known World, available from Finishing Line Press, on Amazon, or at your friendly local bookstore, if you ask.
