In addition to creative nonfiction and some small amount of poetry, I've written the following, which, if you're a member of my family, as I suspect you are, you might be interested in:
Interview with Brian Doyle
River Teeth forthcoming
This is stage two of my plan to meet and interact with my favorite authors. This interview was conducted over email in April 2002.
I was in Uruguay in December 2000, so I called up Galeano's book distributor, played it like the interview was guaranteed to be published, then, when it looked like it would fly, I emailed the interviews editor at Fourth Genre, played it like the interview was assured, and what do you know, it worked. Galeano is one of my favorite authors, and this interview is intelligent, humorous, and insightful. We did the interview in Café Brasilero, Montevideo's oldest café, in Spanish, and I later translated it. Also published along with the interview was a selection of Galeano's writing, which I chose and wrote an introduction for.

The Importance of Spiritual Habit
Colloquium: Essays in Literature and Belief. Richard Cracroft, Jane D. Brady, Linda Hunter Adams, eds. Provo: Brigham Young UP, 2001. 59-68.
This article, which focuses on the advice of Pascal and C. S. Lewis (both converts to Christianity), was originally delivered as a talk at a Literature and Belief conference at BYU. It was later selected and revised and revised for inclusion in this volume.
Eventually I may list the book reviews I've published. For now, suffice to say that I've been doing a few reviews so I can get free books by authors I like. It all began with Neil Peart's book The Masked Rider.
