Book Birthday X 3!

Happy Birthday to my three most recent books!

My first novel, The Shaman of Turtle Valley, was published by Braddock Avenue Books in May 2019. It’s a story about a young man who marries a Korean woman when he is stationed with the army in Seoul and brings her home to the mountains of Virginia. The book explores the theme of an outsider trying to fit in, but it also taps into parallels between Korean and American history and culture.

In May 2020, a couple of months into the pandemic, Press 53 published my third short fiction collection, House of the Ancients and Other Stories. It was NOT a good time to be bringing out a book. Although we made some attempts to attract attention on Zoom, I think we were all a little shell-shocked by what was happening around us. Anyway, the book includes stories set all over the world and features men behaving badly, but not without consequences.

Then, in May 2021, Regal House Publishing published my second novel, Oliver’s Travels. The book follows a young man, Ollie, as he searches for his uncle and the truth about the trauma he suffered as a child. Ollie, besides being a philosopher obsessed with the source of truth and knowledge, is an aspiring author and lives vicariously through his fictional alter ego, Oliver. It was a fun book to write and, I’m told, it’s both funny and thought-provoking.
