I'm best known for my nonfiction books on creative productivity and how to overcome procrastination, perfectionism, and blocks. I taught classes on those topics at leading arts, educational, business, and other venues for more than two decades.

This site is devoted to my fiction, which I've published in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine and elsewhere. I'm a graduate of the Clarion Science Fiction Writers Workshop, where my teachers included Ursula K. LeGuin, Samuel R. Delaney, and Octavia Butler.

My current project is a novel set against the milieu of 19th-century Pacific Ocean whaling. I'm happy to hear from anyone with an interest in that topic or any of my other projects. Please send a concise email and also feel free to connect with me via my socials.
