BEING FULL OF LIGHT, INSUBSTANTIAL, my new poetry collection (100 poems) published by Space and Time is now available at & is on the Final Ballot for this year's HWA Bram Stoker award. I am the first African-American recipient of the Bram Stoker Award and the only author with fiction in three landmark anthologies that celebrate African-Americans speculative writers: the award-winning anthology Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction (Warner Aspect), Dark Dreams (Kensington), and Dark Thirst (Pocket Book). I have a bachelor of science in mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University and currently work in the computer industry. My previous two collections, Animated Objects and Consumed, Reduced to Beautiful Grey Ashes are also available from
