Author bio

As a reader, I have always looked for stories that take me outside my own thick skull. I mean, stories that give me access to the human self's crevices, especially when that self is not my own. The most extraordinary thing about fiction is its ability to take us deep into the hearts and souls of our fellow beings in a way that makes us more sympathetic, empathetic, kinder, and a little less self-centered. So naturally, I wish to write stories that allow me and my readers to experience lives in other places and at different times. My favorite writers are Garcia Marquez, Leo Tolstoy, Franz Kafka, Jane Austen, and Italo Calvino.
