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 Press), "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 how to do business over the Internet, published by Osborne/McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, Wiley, and Mighty Words. Since 1993 I have been a publisher of electronic books sold through major vendors. Previously I worked for Digital/Compaq for 19 years. I graduated from Yale, with a major in English, and earned an MA from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in Comparative Literature (French, Russian, and German). At Yale, I had creative writing courses with Robert Penn Warren and Joseph Heller.
