I'm the author of Fobbit (Grove/Atlantic), a comic novel about the Iraq War. I earned my BA in English from the University of Oregon in 1987 and my MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Alaska in 2004. After working as a reporter for newspapers in Montana, I enlisted in the Army as a journalist. During my military career, I was named the top Military Journalist in the Department of Defense for 1993. I retired from the military in 2008 and have been working on a novel loosely based on my experiences in Iraq. My short stories and essays have appeared in Esquire, Narrative, The Literarian, Glimmer Train Stories, The Greensboro Review, The Missouri Review, and other literary quarterlies. I regularly contributes book reviews to The Barnes & Noble Review, San Francisco Chronicle and January Magazine.
