the bio, the links






I will have two novels coming out (soon). Hollywood Sinners (a 30's gangster starlet melodrama) and Hidden River (a drag queen's erotic tale).

I grew up on a goat farm near the Mississippi River near Mark Twain country. I did as much theater and art in high school as I could. My college degree was in art, cinema and photography. I’ve won two awards for film making in Minneapolis.

I’ve worked at grocery stores, a pizza place, a punk coffee shop, and at two large groups homes for mentally ill and retarded adults. Being involved in labor organizing, I was the recording secretary for the Steel Workers union. I’ve always written stories and poems. I had five self illustrated children’s stories published in Canada.

Did I say I'll have two novels out? One from Lady Aibell Press (an imprint of Chippewa Publishing) and one from Stone Garden Publishing. I do a Joan Crawford comic strip for Outlands Magazine, a monthly gay publication in Reno.

Peter - I didn't know you did children's stories! Please, tell me more... Who's your publisher? What are the stories about/where can I get/see copies?
Believe it or not, my alter ego (that being the real me, mother of two) writes picture books and I've had zero luck getting published. I should add - I don't illustrate, just write the words.
You just get cooler every time I read your stuff...
