I began writing as a teenager, even starting an underground newspaper at my high school -- the first of multiple publications I would write for that subsequently stopped publishing. I wrote news or commentary off and on for years.

I decided to go to law school, which brought me back to my home state of Michigan. I started writing about law and publishing in legal journals, reveling whenever something I wrote was cited by a judge or a legal scholar (writing this sentence prompted me to jump onto Google Scholar and look for recent citations). I even managed a book deal with a legal publisher. After that, I had a writing drought for several years. The demands of work, a family of young kids, and repeatedly opting to move into fixer-upper houses sapped my writing mojo. Now I'm back, and I'm making a run at writing fiction. Piker Press was the first to accept a story from me.
