I like to write in my spare time. My third novel, Trenton Makes, the World Takes, got me representation at Harold Ober Agency. Ober represented Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner and Langston Hughes. “First novel fame here I come!” I thought.  Alas, though I got a bunch of compliments, no contracts came my way.

Click to read the short story, published in Ellery Queen's, from which the novel was developed. Or read another story I like (probably because it's about middle age and flying) called Jack Caudle Flies for Us All.
