A Rhode Islander in Australia for 20+ years, I started in psychology but ended up with a BA and MFA in Creative Writing from Fairfield U and Emerson College. No study is ever wasted on writers. I've worked in media and publishing since '91 and have edited over 100+ published titles across fiction and non-fiction. My dark fantasy/fairy tale for adults, Serpent's Wake: A Tale for the Bitten was published in '18. The craft book, Winning Short Story Competitions: Essential Tools for the Serious Writer emerged from the patterns of the good and not-so-good manuscripts my friend Cate Sawyer and I noticed as editors and literary judges. I'm also delighted to mention that my story, "Birnam Hall" will appear in Black Ink's Generation X-ed for release in January 2022.
