I've written a memoir about conversion, Catholic by Choice: Why I Embraced the Faith, Joined the Church and Embarked on the Adventure of a Lifetime, Loyola Press, now available from Amazon and bookstores. I’ve also published two books of poetry, The Glass Children and Success Stories.
My poems and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, Poetry, Hudson Review, Image Journal – Good Letters and elsewhere. I’ve also written a boatload of business materials.
