About Me

Words, You See, Are the Thing

I consider myself less a writer than a wordsmith - an artist whose chosen medium is the written word rather than clay or paint or bronze.

Conceptually, I see writing  as a way to create art from found objects. And while my “art” is expressed in words, that art is assembled from my lived experience and everything around me—snatches of conversation, people I’ve met, houses and cars and objects I’ve seen. I don’t so much invent stories, so much as retell,  observe and detail.

My fourth novel—"Excellent Sons: A Love Story in Three Acts"—was released by Beaten Track Publishing on November 4, 2021, and is a 2022 Lambda Literary Award winner in the Gay Romance category, and a 2022 Next Generation Indie Awards finalist in the LGBTQ+ category.
My third novel, "The Sun, the Earth & The Moon*" was published by Beaten Track Publishing November 15, 2019.

My Second Novel, "Unbroken," was  published in September 2013 by Beaten Track, and is a 2014 Lambda Literary Award finalist, and a 2014 IPPY (Independent Publishers) Gold Medalist in the gay fiction category. 

My allegorical novella, "Vampire Rising," was released in July 2015.

Born in the Bronx,  I now live in the East Falls section of Philadelphia, PA with my husband and our two rescue dogs, Atticus and Gatsby.
