The Dead Husband

I Remember

I write a lot about memory in my books. Good memories, bad memories, and especially false memories.  My dad was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's at the age of 62 and he passed at 69, so the horror of slipping into a milky haze of one's own existence has never...

My 2021 To-Do List

Holy Hell, I’m 50

A couple weeks ago I turned 50 (on Bastille Day, for all you Francophiles out there). When I turned forty I had a big party and was planning to do the same for fifty but, you know, pandemic. I'm excited to be fifty. Excited to see what the decade brings, assuming we...
