"Raise a glass to this Laurence Sterne of our day."
I am an American writer with family roots in Ireland and the New York area. In the once-traditional fashion of writers, I traveled widely when young and acquired an education and varied experience of life in different countries, working at different jobs (again, respecting tradition): translator, bartender, bookstore clerk, urban planning technician, computer network administrator, editor, teacher, and even freelance writer. I now live in Texas with my family.
"Comparisons to James Joyce will come inevitably."
I have been a regular contributor to Boston Review for 12 years and counting, and my stories and articles have appeared in many other journals and reviews, including The New York Times, The Economist, The Scotsman, and Context. Automobile-related miscellany of mine occasionally shows up on the online automotive journal Autosavant. I am on the faculty of Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Connecticut, as a lecturer in creative writing.
