  • Publishing Experience:Journalist covering U.S. nonprofits, foundations, and life in general. President and Chief Elephant Officer of Elephant's Bookshelf Press, LLC, and publisher of Spring Fevers, an anthology of short stories, 2012, which includes sixteen stories by ten AQC writers, and The Fall, a collection of tales from the apocalypse. Ironically, The Fall was delayed by the apocalyptic Hurricane Sandy. Published Summer's Edge and Summer's Double Edge in July 2013 and Winter's Regret in January 2014. Our first novel, Whispering Minds by A.T. O'Connor, was published in November 2013, and our second, Battery Brothers, in time for baseball's opening day, 2014. Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand by RS Mellette was published in Dec. 2014. Looking at 2015, we're aiming for two novels and a horror anthology. In 2015, I had an essay published in Red Fez, which was my first "memoirish" piece. I expect to do more of that in 2015 and beyond.

Whoa, he had been major agent. Used to rep Stephen King among other well known horror writers.

Very sudden, from what I read, and still relatively young. And so soon after literary agent Elaine Koster passed.
