Here’s a listing of the books I wrote, or helped to write with various talented authors & equally talented editors.

BROKEN-ABROAD-FRONT-400

Broken Abroad is a collection of stories about nine different Americans in Europe. They are not searching for traces of their ancestors. They’re searching for themselves, for the meaning of home and the road forward. A woman cuts the resemblance to her mother away from her flesh. A grieving sister tries to honor her twin brother, whose ashes she carries in her pocket. Survivors of a mass shooting find refuge in a fairy tale. These are stories of the lost, damaged and grief-stricken who have run far away from home, to another country, only to find that life and death will follow them everywhere.

Human Detritus is a collection of nine short works about the kind of people we’ve all encountered: a victim. A teacher. A dysfunctional family. A slut and a factory worker. Told with caustic anger and sardonic humor, these are stories of human debris left behind by some and absorbed by others.

Tales of surviving, failing and awakening, Human Detritus is an examination of the impact that every day nobodies make on one another, leaving us all a little less rotten or maybe a little more despicable in the process.
