THE DESERT PLACES...coming October 15th

I’m a writer.

My new book, which I wrote with Robert Kloss and illustrator Matt Kish, is now available here. It’s called THE DESERT PLACES. It’s probably one of the most gorgeous books you’ll ever hold in your hands.

My debut short story collection, MAY WE SHED THESE HUMAN BODIES, is available from Curbside Splendor.

Atlantic Wire called it the “best small press debut of 2012.”

Publisher’s Weekly said it “swirls with a Tim Burton-like whimsy…modern fables in which epiphanies replace moral lessons and tales unfold with Grimm-like wickedness.”

Flavorwire named it one of their “one of their 10 “must-reads” for October 2012.”


over a dozen bloggers and literary magazines and websites named it one of the best books of 2012.

(And yes, that really is my real name.)
