I write satire.

Both my novels take a playful approach to the problems that plague us. They are serious literary fiction but they respond best to readers who don’t take themselves seriously. They don’t shy from tragedy and horror; they can be irreverent towards the holiest things but stand in awe of the ordinary.

My work has been compared to Joseph Heller’s but that’s unfair to Heller and sets up too great an expectation. I want my readers to enjoy a mixture of comedy (deadly shredder machines), romance (foot-fetish blackmail), and tragedy (kindergarteners rehearsing the intruder drill).

Reading is good for you. And novels make us human.
