Hello! I'm a writer from central New York who has bipolar disorder. Among other topics, I write about mental illness and writing. I have short stories published in Lynx Eye, Lost Coast Review, The Outrider Review, Sliver of Stone Magazine, The Mondegreen, The Linnet's Wings, Cobalt Review, Breath & Shadow, The Round Up, Postscripts to Darkness, Masque & Spectacle, and several other journals. I have a poem in The Poeming Pigeon, essays about mental illness in The Ram Boutique and Amygdala Literary Magazine, and an essay in Parts Unbound: Narratives of Mental Illness & Health, a book that was published by Lime Hawk Literary Arts Collective. My story "Santa Lucia" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. I've written three novels entitled Purple Loosestrife, Hoping It Might Be So, and Dark and Bright, all of which are as yet unpublished. I'm working on a memoir about my experiences with bipolar disorder. I have a B.A. in English from SUNY Buffalo and an M.A. in English from SUNY College at Brockport. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog!

What I'm Currently Reading...

A few months have passed since I posted about my current reading material so I thought I'd share. I'm reading Daphne du Maurier's My Cousin Rachel, Jack Kerouac's On the Road, and Stephen King's On Writing. All are very good. I don't usually read two novels at a time, but I've made an exception for now. I'll read several nonfiction books at a time, however.

I just finished Michio Kaku's Physics of the Future and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an excellent book by an excellent writer. I highly recommend it to anyone. It isn't really all about physics. It touches on all science. Kaku theorizes about the changes that will take place between now and the year 2100. It's all based on the direction science is going presently, so Kaku's ideas seem quite plausible. He ends with a chapter about a day in the life of 2100, which is fascinating as well as a lot of fun. It's January 1, 2100, and he goes through the day of a typical man. I very much enjoyed this chapter. I loved the entire book, and I believe any reader, and especially any lover of science, would, too.
