Author's Bio

My published works include: "The Name of Hero" (historical novel, published by Houghton Mifflin), "Ethiopia Through Russian Eyes" (translation from the Russian, published by Red Sea Pess), "Saint Smith and Other Stories" (novellas and stories), "Echoes from the Attic" (contemporary novel, co-authored with Ethel Kaiden), "The Lizard of Oz" (satiric fantasy), and "Now and Then and Other Tales from Ome" (children's stories), and four books about doing business over the Internet, published by Osborne/McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, Wiley, and Mighty Words. Now a publisher of electronic books (http://www.samizdat.com/quencheditions), I worked for Digital/Compaq for 19 years, most recently as "Internet Evangelist." I graduated from Yale, with a major in English, and got an MA from the U. of Mass. at Amherst in Comparative Literature (French, Russian, and German). At Yale, I had creative writing courses with Robert Penn Warren and Joseph Heller. Just completed new novel "Slow Magic, Fast Magic".
