CREATIVE WRITING

In addition to my work in academia, I am also a creative writer. I write poetry, fiction, and even a little creative non-fiction. My work is mostly speculative/fantastic, and I often draw on my academic interests for inspiration. My work has been nominated for the Rhysling Award, the Dwarf Stars Award, the Pushcart Prize, and the Best of the Net Anthology.
