I’ve published over fifty short stories and three novels: The Road to the Island, In the City of the Disappeared, and Last Chance for First, as well as a book of nonfiction, A Method to March Madness: An Insider’s Look at the Final Four (co-written with former Central Connecticut State University Athletics Director C.J. Jones). A former editor of Quarterly West magazine at the University of Utah, I have edited or co-edited six anthologies of short stories: Flash Fiction; Sudden Flash Youth; Flash Fiction Funny; You Have Time for This; A Celestial Omnibus; and Best American Flash Fiction of the 21st Century (Shanghai, China). I’m currently working on two new anthologies: High on Honey, or Short on Sugar? Seven to Thirteen Word Love Stories; and The Conelrad Station, an anthology of Cold War atomic fiction.
