About me

Occupation Writer/college professor
Location North Carolina, United States
Introduction My third novel, Blood Clay, will appear in November from Press 53. It is set in Piedmont North Carolina, my home since 1997. Other books: Wake Wake Wake, a poetry collection; Fidelities, a short story collection; a novel about the 1970s called Survivor; and an SF novel way back when, Neena Gathering, in Brazil published as Mundo Perdido. I teach at North Carolina A and T State University after a long career as a newspaper reporter and editor. And late in life I have taken up sailing - look for High Cotton on Lake Kerr.
