“I’ve come to writing relatively late in life, having done time in the technology sector for the “benefits.” In retrospect, I’m not sure there were any. After years in the trenches, I set out to do what I’d wanted to from my earliest memory, that is, write. I’m fascinated by the variety and energy of the LGBTQ community and often write of what Armistead Maupin calls “the logical family.” The family we create for ourselves.
My literary icons run the gamut from Agatha Christie to Walter Mosely, Patrick Dennis to Armistead Maupin, and Jane Austin to Bart Yates. From my earliest memory, I have been inextricably drawn to outré characters who poke fun from the outer edge. When pressed, I also admit a weakness for faded glamor. “Little Edie” Beale of Grey Gardens and Norma Desmond of Sunset Boulevard are particular favorites.
My most recent book is entitled A Book of Revelations. It was an International Press Award “Distinguished Favorite” for 2017. My debut novel was The HomePort Journals (Wilde City Press 2015), set in my hometown of Provincetown, Massachusetts. A resident since 1987, I live in 130-year-old Cape with commanding harbor views. I write in a small shed just a stone’s throw from the house. Dori, an amazing Golden Retriever makes sure I get out for long walks every day. I post pictures from our walks can be seen on Instagram.“
When not splitting wood for my vintage woodstove, I split my time between Provincetown and South Beach.
