I write speculative fiction (and some other stuff). I want to create those miss-your-train-stop stories, the kind that absorb you in the happy concentration enjoyed by children at play, mystics in prayer, and artists at work, who forget to eat. I think when you get in that flow, where time doesn’t matter and you forget about yourself, it’s very close to the meaning and purpose of life.
My debut novel, JOSHUA, MONSTER HUNTER, is a middle-grade urban fantasy, a spooky adventure that follows Joshua, foster kid, trouble maker, into the terrifying world of monsters.
I live in New York City with my wife and three little boys, where I teach math to a bunch of clever middle schoolers at an inner city school. If a kid brings a comic or a graphic novel into my class, you will probably find me reading over their shoulder,
