I grew up in New York, and moved to Israel in 2001, after getting married to Naomi Libicki. We have a son, Uriel, who's a treasure and a delight, and who likes yelling a great deal. I've currently got a number of unpublished novels that I'm trying to sell, as well as an MA in Maritime Studies, with a concentration in Maritime Archaeology and History.

In the last few years, I've published some short fiction.


"Dholes are known only by dim rumor, from the rustling they make amongst mountains of bones, and the slimy touch they have when they wriggle past one." -- H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream Quest of Unkown Kadath

In honor of International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day, I've put up an early novel, Parricide at parricide_novel. There's some good stuff in there, and it's completely free.
