When someone asks me what I do for a living, I answer honestly: I teach high school. I feel no need to puff out my chest and bluster about being "a writer." I started writing seriously in my early-20s, and like a trained monkey, I've kept at it. Other than listing the books that I've written, which are all here, that's about all there is to say about me as a writer. I will never talk to you about Thomas Pynchon, Wallace Stevens or David Foster Wallace (they confuse me); nor will I scratch my chin or touch my face in a bio photo.
I live in Manchester, New Hampshire, with my wife and children. However, I'm a Rhode Island-native, so I reserve the right to not pronounce my R's.
I also write a Red Sox column for Dirty Water News in Boston that you can read here. I'm also a regular contributor to The Good Men Project where you can read my articles here. I remain an avid robot-dancer while training to be a competitive dead-lifter.
Here's an interview with me at Drunk Monkeys.
