What a long, strange trip it has been (and the journey continues). My historical novel, Line by Line, published in March of 2011, and my nonfiction book about hobos, called Mulligan Stew, published in November 2013. I just completed a novella, called Sidetracks, which was inspired by readers asking me to write more about the characters they met in Line by Line.
By day I’m a freelance copyeditor of college textbooks, computer books, and works of fiction. Nights and weekends, and between freelance gigs, I’m working on railroader stories and another novel.
I’m also a musician, with a BA in piano performance, and a photographer, who occasionally exhibits in the Cleveland area. I also taught photography to people with disabilities—and they taught me to take a different look at the world.
