He has published in every major genre (most recently a book of nonfiction, Tanning Season) and has taught writing and literature at the collegiate level for nearly twenty five years. He lives in Colorado with his family (wife Sarah and sons Conrad, Coover, and Hunter and two puppies, Nut and Bean) and encourages everyone to adopt from a rescue shelter and spay-neuter all pets!

Product Details

Michigan's Upper Peninsula is blessed with a treasure trove of storytellers, poets, and historians, all seeking to capture a sense of Yooper Life from settler's days to the far-flung future. Since 2017, the U.P. Reader offers a rich collection of their voices that embraces the U.P.'s natural beauty and way of life, along with a few surprises.

The twenty-three works in this third annual volume take readers on U.P. road and boat trips from the Keweenaw to the Soo. Every page is rich with descriptions of the characters and culture that make the Upper Peninsula worth living in and writing about. U.P. writers span genres from humor to history and from science fiction to poetry. This issue also includes imaginative fiction from the Dandelion Cottage Short Story Award winners, honoring the amazing young writers enrolled in all of the U.P.'s schools.
