About

I've been a writer since 1956. I've seen writing and publishing change a lot over the years. I look forward to exploring the ways Wattpad connects people to reading and writing, and may help give them confidence through feedback from readers.

I am also an inventor and entrepreneur. Six years ago, the LongPen -- the first it's-really-your-signature in pen on paper, but remotely -- made its debut. It is now part of the services offered by Syngrafii.com; and is also the basis for a writer/creator/fan/reader service being built at http://www.fanado.com/.

NEWEST NEWS: The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home, written with Naomi Alderman. You can find four episodes on her Wattpad page now! http://www.wattpad.com/story/2426517-the-happy-zombie-sunrise-home

The new picture was taken by Cat Sparks at the Key West Literary Seminar on Speculative Fiction in 2012.
