Other Writings

Novels are my true love, but it never hurts to have a little something on the side. I have been published in scholarly journals, newspapers, literary anthologies, legal and mediation magazines and more. Here is a link to “Without His Fingers,” an essay about my uncle that just appeared in Philadelphia Stories magazine: http://www.philadelphiastories.org/without-his-fingers. And here’s another, “The (O)ther Kahn,” about my grandfather, brother to noted architect, Louis I. Kahn: http://www.philadelphiastories.org/other-kahn.

Below is a list of my other works to date. The essay published in Those Who Can…Teach!, a collection about influential teachers, is one of my favorites. It came out way back in 1999, marking the moment of my conversion to literature.
