Current Projects


Everyone’s creative process is different. In addition to the BLOG, I happen to be writing a few other works at the same time, switching back and forth between them, as mood and ideas arise.

One book, 95% complete, is an analysis of ancestry and migration. Investigating one family’s history, I have attempted to locate its particulars within a much broader perspective on immigration, the coming and going of generations, religion, and politics.

Another, three-quarters complete, is a novel, set primarily in Central Asia. Yes, there is time-travel; yes, there are politics and religion and sex and violence; and no, I will not tell you more right now.

And, finally, I am finishing up an essay connected to my university course, Lying 101, an interdisciplinary examination of the phenomenon of lying.
