I spent about 20 years reporting and editing news. While not generally valued by the fine arts crowd, that’s great training for storytellers. And these days, telling stories is what I do.

Novels
Back in 2009 I experimented with self-publishing on the web, but the channels and technology to support the new ebook formats weren’t really mature yet. As of November 2013, I’m back in the epublishing game with three complete novels: Bokur, a contemporary Caribbean voodoo fantasy about what happens when middle-aged bourgeoise white people acquire the ability to possess other people’s bodies; and the first two books of The Darbas Cycle: A Madness and Siobeth.

Journalism
What I can do, but more importantly, what I’ve done.

Blogging
Blogging as a separate genre feels strangely obsolete now, although the medium we know as blogging is with us for the long haul.

Short stories
Those of you who ask, “Do you have a copy of the story you published back in…” should go here. I’ve got links to vendors and free electronic copies via the Xark Fiction Project.
