The Washington Independent Review of Books is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that operates a book-review website. We post new content -- including reviews, features, and author Q&As -- every day. The Independent was organized by a group of writers in the DC area who were dismayed by the disappearance and shrinkage of book reviews in the traditional media. To date, we have published close to a thousand original pieces, drawing on the talents of 200+ writers and editors in the Washington region and around the nation.

Here are links to my monthly columns for The Washington Independent Review of Books, as well as short stories, essays and interviews I’ve published, along with a note about each piece."A tale so deftly conceived it lifted me out of the chaos of my syllabi-constructing, textbook-choosing, beginning-of-semester chaos and transported me into the starkly efficient mind of an Eisenhower-era killer, then to hills of Tuscany during the hear of World War II. . .an exceptionally constructed whodunit laid against a backdrop that is both elegant and volatile." -- Patricia Smith, Washington Independent Review of Books I wrote a column for the Washington Independent Review of Books called Monsters' Ink (cute title, right?) about whether you can like an artist's work if the artist is morally reprehensible. Or, more to the point, Woody Allen.I wrote the review; and they published it on October 20. It was among the top five most read reviews for October, a fact the Washington Independent Review of Books publicized in a second article.
