Work in Progress


And here’s what else I’ve been working on lately:

This World and the Next is a sprawling near-term post-apocalyptic epic, beginning when fourteen-year-old ace gamer and Air Force brat Rosa Calder takes shelter with her family from seemingly harmless power outage—but when they come back above ground, their world, and everything Rosa has ever known, is gone.  Here’s a scene.  Sometimes this is a screenplay too.

Other People’s Pets is a novel about Bill, a Chicago dogwalker in moral turmoil over a night he can’t remember.  Also featuring: lycanthropy, theoretical physics, and kamikaze poetry.  Read an excerpt here.

A Near-Life Experience is a novel set in the 1990s about a love triangle in a Bozeman, Montana trailer park.  An earlier version was a finalist in the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society’s contest.  You can read an excerpt here.  I’ve also recently rewritten the story as a screenplay.
