I moved in with the woman who would be my wife in 1984 the weekend before I started to teach middle school (I teach 7th grade English at University School). My son was born in 1987, my first story was published in 1988, and my first novel was published in 1992. I have reviewed books for the Plain Dealer, the New York Review of Science Fiction, and the Volunteer, the magazine of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives.

Charles hasn't saved anything yet.
