Until 2003, I had never lived more than fifty miles from New York City. Since then I have moved to Tennessee, married, acquired a daughter and a classic MG, and gotten serious about poetry. All these projects seem to be working out pretty well. My poetry has appeared in Pirene's Fountain (and in the First Water, the Best of Pirene's Fountain anthology), Gargoyle, The Labletter, The Pedestal, and other places. My first collection of poetry, The Review Mirror, was published by Unsolicited Press in September, 2013. On Sunday mornings, at 11 AM Central time, I talk about poetry on WRFN-LP in Pasquo, TN (www.radiofreenashville.org).
In non-poetic endeavors, I am the author of Bill, the Galactic Hero: The Final Incoherent Adventure (with Harry Harrison), Democracy and Other Problems (a collection of essays), and various stories and articles. I worked in New York in publishing (in various capacities including editor, agent, publicist, and copyeditor) and film production (screenwriter, still photographer, script supervisor). After leaving the city I went back to school and became a college English teacher, from which I am retired.
