I’ve spent the past fifteen years writing and publishing my own books. As a student of literature at Colgate University, I decided to make enduring quality my governing principle. My fiction is never “pulp” – it’s character-driven drama sustained by well-written sentences.
In 2006, I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from The New School, with a concentration in Fiction. I only mention the MFA because I don’t believe you need one to be a good writer, but it definitely helps with becoming a strong editor, which is how I view myself.
And if there’s one activity I’ve done a LOT of since I started writing as a career, it’s editing.
