I am a writing instructor/tutor, freelance writer/editor, and father who dabbles in writing fiction from time to time. I have also been an inventory control specialist/tech writer for a NASA contractor, a cashier in a university food court, and a library employee. My first publication came courtesy of Rick Silva (Kinships). Since then, I have published a number of academic book reviews (mostly in Extrapolation and the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts), a number of articles for Pyramid Magazine (Steve Jackson Games), a few academic articles (Extrapolation and JFA), an article in conference proceedings (When Genres Collide), and a book of literary criticism (The Modern Literary Werewolf: A Critical Study of the Mutable Motif). ...more
