I’m working as a columnist for LitReactor!

Thanks for reading my stuff. Now pay, ya jerk!

I have a handful of titles available on the Kindle store. Check them out. By which I mean you should pay for them.

In all seriousness, follow me on Twitter. I make everything I’ve got free maybe every quarter or so, which is as often as Kindle allows.

Barehanded: poemsBarehanded: Poems

My collection of poems. It’s a quick read, and not a bad collection for people who don’t like poetry, in general. Super-accessible.

Get it on Amazon.





This is the one you want to read if you like this web site. What you’ll find here is a collection of some early, early blogs. I’m talking MySpace, if that timestamps it for you. Learn the origin of Helpfulsnowman.com, which has a lot to do with pee. Surprise.
Get it on Amazon.




Tough Shoot: a short essayTough Shoot: a short essay

This is a quick essay I wrote during my time at Tom Spanbauer’s intensive Dangerous Writing workshop. Which I recommend to anyone. The workshop, I mean. The essay is good, but not THAT good.

Get it on Amazon.




The First of MeThe First of Me: Stories

A nice little collection of short stories. Older stuff. You’ll find something you like in here.

Get it on Amazon.




Ninja SonsNinja Sons

Ah, Ninja Sons. Easily one of the stupidest things I’ve written. Which is saying something. I’ve written about a machine that turns any liquid into urine. See Origins for details.

Buy it on Amazon.

Buy Some Other Shit on Amazon

I also review a lot of stuff on Goodreads. And by “review”, I mean write stuff that’s kinda related to whatever I’m reviewing.
