A blog about poetry, teaching, crime fiction (maybe), a certain amount of politics, guitar gear and other stuff.
Getting close-ish to the end of the first draft of FIRE SEASON. It's a fun book--lots of jokes, a certain amount of sex, a UFO sub-plot, a human head in a tank full of lobsters. And fire. Lots of fire. What's not to like?
I'm the author of the Frank Coffin mystery series, HIGH SEASON (2007), MATING SEASON (2009) and FIRE SEASON (2012) from St. Martin's/Minotaur. I've also published three books of poems VANITAS MOTEL (1998), THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE (2001), and The MANSION OF HAPPINESS (2016), all from Oberlin College Press. I'm currently at work on a comedic novel and a new book of poems. When I'm not writing I'm a college professor, a sort of okay guitar player, a guitar gear junkie, and a husband and father in progress.
