I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English. When I write in French, I often use my middle initial “J” to avoid confusion with another blogger with views very different from mine. I have many unpublished short stories in English and a few in French that I am hesitate to post on this blog. Some of the stories are indecent but really, really nice! All are available for publication. For a list of published stories see my vita, linked below.
I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California with my wife Krishna. She is a painter in the orientalist genre that includes rich interior scenes and scantily clad women surprised at their bath. I paint a little myself. (See the ligthhouse to the left.)
Currently, I am putting the finishing touches to my manuscript: I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography. At the end of 2013, I don’t have an agent or a publisher. I am interested in connecting with one or both.
In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) You may print and distribute anything of mine you find on this blog so long as you give me credit and keep my name on both soft and hard copies. Print copies of my stories, essays and scholarly articles not posted on this web are available from me for the asking. Share this blog with your friends and with your enemies.
The vita linked here is unusually thorough. LINK TO MY VITA (not always up to date): vita100812
