Bio
I'm an editor/writing living in the only state in the Union with an official devil.

Most of my writing has been queer speculative fiction. I have two short story collections, Trysts and Second Thoughts. My novel, Vintage, is a young adult ghost story (Boy Meets Ghost) that was recommended by the GLBT Round Table of the American Librarian Association. I've been a finalist for: the Gaylactic Spectrum, the Golden Crown Literary, the Lambda Literary Awards and the Andre Norton Award. I'm represented by Eddie Gamarra of the Gotham Group.

My cat hates my laptop.
