At heart, I’m a literary fiction writer, so I’m rich in soul and poor of pocket. To sustain my desire to write for adults, I write for kids ($$$). So far I’ve published eleven books (under pseudonyms) and one for adults. I’m working on my next book now, for adults, a non-fiction sort-of-memoir about a rare, esoteric emotion, not many are familiar: anxiety.

“This moody novel is about dependency and inaction, but it is told with brave, risky language. Much of the time this pays off with metaphors that are so fresh they are almost jarring; they deliver the shock of unexpected truth.” -the San Francisco Chronicle
