About Me

Forgotten cultures fascinate me. I’m interested in what war, the passage of time, and the burden of a storied past can do to a civilization. Events like the burning of the library of Alexandria and the (much more recent) looting of the National Museum in Baghdad haunt me and inform my writing. I think it’s equally amazing how persistent the fragile artifacts of culture can be, and how evanescent. My novel, The Empire in Autumn, imagines an empire that existed long before ancient Egypt, now lost to history.

My writing adventures aren’t limited to imagined ancient histories, though. Visit the writing page to explore some of my work.

Professionally, I’m a scholar of ancient philosophy and I edit academic and other types of writing. I’m interested in theater and performance in the ancient world, as well as contemporary interpretations of mimeticism. I’m also a 2015 graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop.
