i'm the author of CRASH DUMMIES, a novel described by one reviewer as "…funny, provocative, sordid, and steamy. Though set in another, equally duplicitous time, CRASH DUMMIES is as modern as the Imperial Presidency.…a profound satire of immoral lives and amoral times." Also author of an autobiographical roman a clef, ALLEGORY, and four volumes of poetry (a fifth, Poems Lost on the Edge of Sleep, will be published in 2007).
Standup comic James Inman says I'm "a Taoist master of the sentence."
Recently gave an invited reading at Westminster College. An excerpt from CRASH DUMMIES won first prize for prose fiction at the 2004 Chicago Printers Row Book Fair
I'm also the owner-director of SCRIMSHAW PRESS: www.angelfire.com/poetry/scrimshaw

I'm working on my third novel and well into the fourth year of my ceaseless search for an AAR-approved agent who can arrange a New York book auction for CRASH DUMMIES. All my books have ample online previews at www.lulu.com/CrashDummies, an online storefront where i sell my books.
It is an emptiness with no reason or reality. Disturbing,without words. This blank piece of paper! There is no thought,no self purpose. As the sky is without the clouds. A pen with out ink. An ocean without water. The mountains with out rock. As well as time is without presence. This blankness in this paper is like life without fullfillment. No emotion,no laughter,not even a tear! Such a waste, as the body is without it's soul. And a flower is with out the sun. For within this blank piece of paper,is a tree with no growth. A waste of imagination,~A blank piece of paper.
