About

Who are you?

What do you write?

I am the former arts and entertainment editor at the North Adams Transcript, and my work has appeared in a number of publications including the Boston Globe, Berkshire Magazine, Berkshire Eagle, Take Magazine, UpCountry Magazine, Hill Country Observer, Publishers Weekly, The Comics Journal, Salem Evening News, Worcester Magazine, the Middlesex Beat, the Dover-Sherborn Press, the Bennington Banner, and many others.

Currently I write a regular steaming media review column for the Berkshire Eagle and review indie comics and more for the Comics Beat.

What else do  you write?

I am also a children’s book author, with a number of titles to my name, including the notorious A Rule Is To Break: A Child’s Guide To Anarchy and Happy Punks 123, the world’s first punk rock picture book. My children’s picture book biography of Frank Sinatra, Frankie Liked To Sing, was published by Abrams Books for his 100th birthday, and with a Sinatra family endorsement. My most recent children’s books are We Say No! A Child’s Guide To Resistance and Gorilla Gardener: How To Help Nature Take Over The World. I also wrote the four-book Time Tripping Faradays series for Stone Arch Books.

My first book was a collection of travel essays called Four Go Mad In Massachusetts, a memoir told through day trips in the Bay State.

I wrote the indie comic book Very Vicky in the 1990s.
