I am a wordsmith, a wordwright, a scribbler, a scrivner, einer Schreiber, einer Autor, einer Romanautor. I put words together to create meaning. But I'm not just saying so. I hold a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from San Jose State University, and despite the onus on such degrees, I am not a Raymond Carver clone, and I don't want to write the "Perfect New Yorker Story." My literary interests range from the satirical to the fantastic, including all that falls in between. I have finished my first novel, The Juanita Paper: A Cacophony, and am currently seeking representation for it. My second novel, tentatively titled Left-Handed Motives, is currently in progress.
