My fiction includes a novel, Holy Joe (Troubador, 2006); two short story collections, The Only Living Boy (Salt, 2009) and When You Were A Mod, I Was A Rocker (Like This Press, 2013); and a novella, A Man Walks Into A Kitchen (Salt, 2011). I’ve written or co-written three Creative Writing textbooks: Everything You Need to Know About Creative Writing: (But Knowing Isn't Everything. . .) (Continuum, 2007); The Road To Somewhere: A Creative Writing Companion, (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014); and How To Write Short Stories (And Think About Them) (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017). I’ve recently published fiction and articles that reflect on the fiction-writing process in the NAWE journal, Writing in Practice, and in New Writing: The Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing. Valley Press will publish my new novel, The Only Living Boy, in autumn 2021.
