Various articles and reviews have been posted over the last few years on this site. Click on the cover to the left to find my review of John Crowley’s Little, Big. Once on the site, you can plug in my name to the search engine and find most of what I’ve contributed so far, including fiction. My most popular article, if the metrics are to be believed, is “Youth in a Box.”

Playscripts, Inc.

This on-demand publisher maintains a running series of blogs from its many authors and contributors.  I was asked to add a piece in the fall of 2011, and have contributed several more since.

J Journal

“The Book of Badges” appears in the Fall, 2013 issue.  A publication of John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, J Journal focuses on issues of justice and law.

Home to some of the best travel writing around, both fiction and non-fiction.  I can quite sincerely recommend the entire site, not simply my small corner of it.  My first (but hopefully not last) piece at Outside In is “The Little Corners of the World,” a barnstormer’s guide to Greece, the Young Communists of Athens, and unusual diaper changes.
