I have been writing fiction for as long as I can remember. I was first published in college, but wrote only intermittently for the next several decades, during which I started and ran a small business, entered medical school, and practiced as an academic emergency physician for almost three decades. I took up writing fiction more seriously around 2002, and since then have published short fiction in Asimov’s, Strange Horizons, Interzone, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, and other venues. One of my stories, “Fourteen Experiments in Postal Delivery,” has been reprinted in The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, Twentieth Annual Collection. I have an story, “The First Day of Someone Else’s Life,” in the upcoming May/June issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. My first novel, Half-Witch, will be published by Small Beer Press in 2018.
