Write, Rather

Writing, spirituality, and other sweet indulgences



Well, you found me! Maybe you've read one of my books, heard me read at a conference, or had me for a creative writing class or consultation.

Whatever brings you here, friend, reader, or fellow writer, be welcomed.

I hope that this site satisfies your curiosity while also bringing you some pleasant surprises.

L'Isola del Silenzio

January 20, 2023

My debut in Italy: this collection of linked essays about a little-known island in the Florida Gulf Coast was published by Galaad Edizioni and receiving quite a bit of attention from the critics. The English-language version was acquired by Rain Chain Press and is due to come out in 2020 under the title After Life as a Human.

Runaway Books

January 20, 2023

My books travel. Whether for business or vacation, for every overnight stay outside my hometown, I leave one of my darlings out with a special dedication for whoever will find it. Did you find one of my traveling babies? Send me a note and let me know where and how.

Get In Touch

Have you written a book and would like advice? Have you been wanting to start a novel or a screenplay but are not sure where to start? I am available for private workshops, and query letters and manuscript consultations.

For reading events and book clubs, I can arrange video conferences, as well as in-person meetings if you're within a drivable distance.

My books are available in most libraries, but if you want to purchase a signed or personalized edition of my book, or if you would like a discount for purchases of five or more of one title, please click the button, and I’ll be in touch. And thanks for being a reader.
