About

I am a writer and author. Most recently my work has appeared at Atlas Obscura, Electric Literature, and the Yankee Institute blog. I’ve also been published in Connecticut Magazine, the Hartford Courant, the Journal of the American Revolution, National Geographic News, the New York Post, and Reason, as well as various local newspapers like the Fairfield Minuteman and the Stamford Advocate. For more than a decade I was a regular contributor and columnist for a pair of children’s magazines.

My first book, Samuel Smedley, Connecticut Privateer (The History Press, 2011), is a biography of the American Revolution’s most daring sea captain.

My short fiction has appeared in Black Static, Weirdbook, and numerous anthologies. My e-book collection The Dead Ride Fast (Raccoon House, 2017) includes six stories of existential dread on the haunted frontier.

I like to run. I’ve competed in races ranging from 5Ks to half marathons to the 2009 New York City Marathon to the occasional OCR.
