Who am I? I’m a professional writer
who doesn’t mind sharing what I know. I’ve taught writing for over 30 years, but now I’m spending my time writing. Still, the knowledge is here if you want it. Currently I write 14,000 publishable new words of fiction per month and frankly, I’m a slacker. I will at least double that output soon. But for now that’s 168,000 publishable new words per year. (If you’d like to see how, click the My Fiction tab above.)
That total does not include blog posts, nonfiction books or other instructional stuff. I’ve written hundreds of pages of nonfiction (including 14 Nonfiction Books and Ebooks on Writing), and thousands of lines of poetry and song lyrics. I’ve written four acclaimed poetry collections, dozens of short stories in various genres, and five short story collections. Of course, like everyone else I tend to life obligations, check the mail, watch football (Geaux, LSU!), go grocery shopping, eat, sleep and do all the other normal things everyone else does.
My works have pulled down some heavy nominations over the years: the Frankfurt (Germany) Book Fair Award, the Foreword Magazine Engraver’s Award, the Pushcart Prize, the Book Expo America (BEA) New York Book of the Year Award, and the National Book Award.
