Bewildering Stories biography

I live in Monticello, Arkansas, with my wife and our two boys, Joshua (aka “Dude”), age 7, and Jacob (aka “Jake The Snake”), age 3. I’m Professor of English and Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Arkansas. My books include the novels The Weary Motel (Backwaters Press) and Love and Rerun in Adams County (Random House) and the story collections Wedlock (Watermark Press) and Spying on Lovers (Amelia Press).

My work has received the Faulkner Society Faulkner Award for the Short Novel, The Omaha Prize for The Novel, The Bradshaw Book Award, The Cairn/St. Andrews Press Short Fiction Award, and four Special Mentions in Pushcart Prize.

“Honey, I Am Only a Big Foot” is part of a small series of stories I’ve written about B. F. Other Big Foot stories of mine have been published in The Chariton Review and Jabberwock Review.
