My family owned a Dodge dealership in Savannah, GA and I spent a lot of time on the lot with my brother, Miles, playing hangman and talking to employees. I went to Hebrew day school with a class of 16 people, then to an all-white (Christian) private high school. Culture shock. I dropped out of two universities for more than two reasons (poor grades not one). I paid off my loans in 3.5 years of 80+ hrs/wk of work. I've been arrested in four different Southeast states (petty crimes). I moved to California. “What’s a literary community?” Examiner.com. Litquake. SF Chronicle. Quiet Lightning. Litseen. Cherishes: Dostoevsky, Nietzsche. I am the founder of Quiet Lightning and Litseen.com and write a literary culture column for the SF Chronicle.
