An autistic savant who speaks like a human radio becomes stagehand for a band of burlesque dancers traveling through the Dust Bowl.
A young woman grows up in an asylum of artists.
In a Section 8 apartment full of chihuahua hair and chicken shit, a traveling therapist falls in love with a mute child whose family calls him The Mystery Baby.
A life is shaped by journeys through farms, factories, war ruins, and misty mountains of the former Yugoslavia.
A woman heads off a battle by multiplying herself and seducing an entire army.
The history of the universe is illuminated by two flies humping on a frosted long john.
I’ll write anything that demands to be written. Fiction, memoir, lies, confessions, essays, reportage, erotica, fantasy, sci-fi prayer poetry, whatever you want to call it, I like to let genres swap seeds and mutate.
