I'm the author of two novels published by Melville House, The Weirdness (2014) and The Insides (2016). One's about the devil and the other one's about a magical knife. They're also both about everyday people making the ordinary sorts of mistakes that human beings make, with results that are tragic, comic, or both. A selection of some shorter work (essays, short fiction, and poetry) is here.
I teach writing at Northeastern University in Boston, and sometimes I give talks and readings other places.
In addition to my writing and teaching, I have a few other oddball projects going, including one where I post contextless phrases from my notes and one where I post people-less shots from other people's films.
