A Blog Redux

It has been 2 years since I last posted a blog entry on my website, and even longer since a redesign. Change is coming. More to come soon. Look for more regular blogs, especially about my new novel-in-progress.

Some other changes of note:

• I left Brooklyn to live in Baltimore.
• I teach writing at the University of Maryland at College Park
• I am hard at work on a new novel about gladiators

Hope & Health,

  1. I loved Zombie and am so excited to hear that there is another novel in the works!

    • Thanks! There are 2 novels that I’m working on, really, and I’m not sure which will be complete first. Hopefully I can share some short fiction in the mean time. Best. – jra
