I learned to read at home when I was four or five. Then, when I was about six, the public schools of Cleveland, Ohio introduced me to the classics, as you see here. I’ve been writing for publication since 1961, when I had a story published in the student literary magazine at the University of Illinois. It was a parody — “Chicken Little” as Dostoevsky would have written it.
In the years since then, my writing's been published in a diverse, not to say wild, range of magazines and anthologies; various editions of my books have come from presses of notably different sorts and sizes, eg, Doubleday and Shameless Hussy.
