#1

Going to retry this blog thing by beginning on a new site.  Like when I wanted to get back into running and bought new shoes.  Or when I wanted to get back into drugs and found a new dealer, yo.  I say screw Thoreau and his warning about enterprises that require new clothes.

As a quick bio: I live in Cincinnati with my wife and three sons.  Both of us are teachers, but she's a Teacher, hardcore and with a capital T.  Me, I get by.  Any freetime I get is spent writing.  Currently, I'm on the third draft of my first novel.  Am hoping to have an "okay, well one isn't truly embarrassing" version ready mid-summer.  We'll see.

Recently, my short story "With These Hands" showed up on Ellen Datlow's Honorable Mention List for 2010, and my story "Into the After" leads off the Stoker nominated Horror Library IV anthology.  So I've got those things going for me.

Oh, and I'm looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones at WHC in Austin.  I'll be the freakishly tall one who's not Paul Tremblay.

Enough for now.
