Just your basic struggling grad student trying to finish a novel. You can also find me at

Please feel free to critique my work and suggest improvements or point out problems. Constructive criticism is always welcome, because I dig revising. I'm tough; I can take it. ; )
9/23: All right, a good bit of the first Black Ribbon installment is up here at FP, partly because I want to see how it looks, and partly because any suggestions anyone has for revision would be helpful, as this is going up on the site next Friday (10/3). Arrrrgh.
8/10: I think I may actually post a segment of the Bennet-Jones Correspondence here as sort of an exclusive, as I don't really have room for it on the web page. It's chapter 4 (Letter 3b), the Speedy Print notice.
I'm out of fiction workshop for now, and I'll be posting the revised stories soon. For the fall semester: a fiction workshop and a poetry workshop, plus a class on Yeats and Heaney. Should be interesting, and it'll all be posted here.
7/24: I'm way too excited about this. Just uploaded the first in a series of letters that will lead up to a story I want to serialize, "The Black Ribbon." You can see the last photographs of Mr. D. Everett Russell here at the Black Ribbon site (URL above). The next letter will come out August 1.
I've also uploaded the story I'm nervous about workshopping on Tuesday, "The Apple of His Eye." It's one of the Will & Claire stories that may end up going into my novel (sans a few visits from the Department of Back Story).
7/3/03: I've just finished uploading most of my finished, readable work (it's a surprisingly small selection. Sigh). I'm in a fiction workshop right now; I just revised "The New World" for my turn on Tuesday. I don't have much done on my nonfiction workshop project, "Havana January," because it became a lot longer and more involved than I thought it would be. So stay tuned for some new chapters on that one.
