Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy – which many believe goes hand in hand with it – will be dead as well. – Margaret Atwood


This is the landing page for all of the creative writing pieces that are far too long to have been posted in their entirety.

Under the “Novels” tab, you will find another list (yay for more tabs) of some areas I have chosen to focus on and some of the books I have written. Each individual tab has a preface that includes a bit of history and context, along with an academic reflection and an excerpt from the chosen novel. Over the past four years, I have written eight full novels, one novella, and two pretty decent starts–you will find some of those here.
