Sleep Before Evening (July 2007
Marianne is teetering at the edge of reason. A death
in the family sends her brilliant academic career and promising future
spiraling out of control until resentment towards those who shaped her past
leads her on a wild and desperate search for the truth about herself. On the
seedy side of New York, she meets Miles, a hip musician busking the streets
and playing low-rent venues in a muddled bid to make his own dreams come
true. In her new life, she finds anarchic squalor, home grown music and
poetry, booze, drugs, sex, violence, love, loss . and, above all,
exhilarating freedom on her troubled journey from sleep to awakening. This
gritty, relentless story unfolds with the same cool detachment that
motivates the central character to peel back the layers of her life and
expose the painful scalding within.

Quark Soup (2006)
Quark Soup contains twenty eight
poems which muse on topics like what it means to be human, love, loss, fear,
longing, and transcendence. Avoiding cliché and the mundane, the poetry in
this collection is accessible to the common reader, with a powerful
intellectual edge and playful wit. As all good poetry should, this work uses
sound, sense, and strong imagery to deal with everyday topics like
depression, birth, growing old, love and death, all moving towards a large
universal picture. As the title suggests, there is a strong astrophysical
theme running through the poems. Most of the poetry in this collection has
been published individually, in well known literary journals, as well as
online in a number of respected international venues. The appeal of this
work is broad, and aimed towards a wide market of both sophisticated poetry
readers, and those who feel that poetry is too highbrow or inaccessible for
