My first book "The Latest Craze" (Fall River Press, 2011), a history of panics, manias and cultural crazes, is in bookstores now, and I'm currently working on two other non-fiction book projects. I've also written several screenplays and a lot of short fiction, and my articles have been included in more than a dozen books in America and abroad.
