I write fiction, nonfiction, short plays, poetry, letters, postcards...Prefer pen and ink and have a manual typewriter but confess to writing my most recent books on a PowerBook. I've published three books and write for The New York Times and The New York Observer. I went to art school in Baltimore, took photographs, painted and fell in love with Japanese woodcuts. Instead of writing classes, studied Ancient Egyptian Grammar and Biosocial Aspects of Human Sexuality at Johns Hopkins, French at Peabody. Drink tea steeped in vintage teapots-- it fuels the fury. What I'm writing-- Society of Impossible Beauty: A Guide to Faerie Style (the first ever!) and a fictionalized memoir: The 27 Notebooks of Nick Dante. There's more...stay tuned!
