My first fiction collection, Transit, has just been published on December 6, 2022. 


My other books include six poetry collections, most recently the light verse collection Catalogs for Food Lovers, and the essay collection Dowsing and Science. My individual poems, as well as humorous and crime stories, have appeared in several anthologies. 



Educated at American University, the University of Chicago, the University of Houston Creative Writing Program and Carleton University, I have received scholarships to attend the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, the Bucknell University Seminar for Younger Poets and the West Chester University Poetry Conference. I have also additionally received Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.

I live with my wife and rescue animals in Washington, DC, and I am available for lectures, readings and signings.
