My Distant Episodes

An homage to Paul Bowles . . . the short story referenced in this page title is all about language: its use and misuse, the fine line we walk between taking it for granted and being grateful for it, and all of the nuances, miscues, and miscommunications that happen when people aren’t looking to actually communicate and understand but instead are looking to enforce an agenda or discourse of superiority. It speaks to what I’ve learned about myself as a writer, and to where I’ve been and where I’m going.

What follows is a list of my publishing credits to date. I won’t say I am proud of everything on this list, but its my work and I have to own it, for good or bad. I did the best I could with who I was and what I knew at the time. But I’m not who I was and I am trying now to figure out the kind of writer I was meant to be.
