Thanks for visiting!
I hope you enjoy browsing my fiction and non-fiction titles, as well as the writing workshops I offer.
I was born in New York City, raised in Miami Beach, and went to University of California in Santa Barbara, finishing up with an MFA in Writing from the Naropa Institute in Boulder, CO. In 1986 I walked across America with The Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament. This 9-month adventure gave me a step-by-step sense of the continent, and of American culture, which deeply influences my writing.
Since 1987 I've been a formal practitioner of Zen meditation, spending much time training at Zen monasteries and practice centers. This is another key influence on my work.
I'm always happy to sign books for you or as gifts for your friends; just send them to me with return postage and I'll inscribe and return them. E-mail me (left) for address information.
