Who are you?

I’m an American writer living in Japan. I’ve written over twenty books including Outwitting Squirrels (yes, that’s the book’s actual title), The Binge-Watching Cure, an anthology of stories that start Twitter-sized small and grow longer, to acclimate people back into reading, and No Time to Say Goodbye, a time travel novella. I now spend most of my time writing short stories, which mesh well with readers’ time and temperament.

Here are some reader reviews of my short stories:

Great storytelling. I enjoyed immensely. Dare I say, shades of Stephen King.

Amazing story. Couldn't tear myself away. And the ending...chills!

Great short story! We need more like this.

Haven't had a "oh, wow!" moment like that in twenty years.

Loved this. Great writing and what an imagination!

You put The Tell Tale Heart to shame. Edgar Allen Poe would be entertained, I am sure.

I need a whole book from you! These stories are great.

Sublime and magical.

This is an amazing, emotional, mind-expanding journey.

Love me some hard science fiction! This hearkens back to the days of Clarke and Asimov.

An imaginative mix of worlds.
