I’m the author of The Circus in Winter, a novel-in-stories, and Comeback Season, a memoir. My current project concerns Linda and Cole Porter.

I’ve read from my work at 70+ venues:

  • Gist Street Reading Series
  • KGB Bar
  • Prairie Lights Bookstore
  • Vouched Books Indy
  • Purdue University
  • University of Illinois
  • Oklahoma State University
  • University of Louisville
  • Hanover College
  • Franklin & Marshall College

My honorarium rates vary, depending on the venue, but generally, it’s $1000.

I love to give readings and answer questions, so please contact me if you’re interested.

Check out my “route book,” a collection of photographs I’ve taken at my readings. Of the audiences. Not of me standing at a podium.
