I’m a freelance book critic. My reviews have appeared in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Newsday, Houston Chronicle, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Miami Herald, Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, San Francisco Chronicle, Iowa Review, Kenyon Review Online, Kirkus Reviews, and BookPage. You can check out some of my reviews here. I am also the recipient of a partial fellowship in fiction writing from the Vermont Studio Center.
I live in Maine with my wife, Diane Magras, author of the middle-grade novel The Mad Wolf’s Daughter (a New York Times Editors’ Choice) and the forthcoming sequel, The Hunt for The Mad Wolf’s Daughter (March 5, 2019); and our frighteningly talented eleven-year-old son. You should see the complicated LEGO and Minecraft structures he’s built. An architect in the making.
