Hey all. I'm a young writer from New Jersey. Working on a manuscript at the moment, but I have a love of short stories (especially Carver), and will occasionally break away to write one when inspiration hits- which, fortunately, has been more often than not, these days. I'm a huge fan of Hesse, Huxley, Updike, Murakami, and Salinger, to name a few. Really, most literary fiction in general is right up my alley, and I think my work tends to be in that same vein. I also enjoy the occasional fantasy and sci-fi, and am hoping to eventually get around to writing a fantasy epic myself. Opinions on the pieces posted here are always greatly welcomed.
