 Short Fiction

After getting a PhD in nuclear physics, I've been working in a variety of disciplines from Environmental Management to computer consulting to metallurgy--and writing stories and poems in the off-hours.

Fall 2019


Gabe, Sam and Nat are three teenage brothers who discover that their finely-honed abilities to argue with, mock, and annoy each other can combine to form a superpower, when facing a common enemy.


They take down armed robbers, dismantle a hate group, rescue the entire country from a nuclear menace... and even manage to knock social giant Facelook Corp down a few pegs.


This is a 47000-word YA novel currently seeking representation.
