and journalist *
Here's a small showcase of my work as an investigative reporter and narrative nonfiction writer.
I've written for print outlets
big and small and have reported for national tv and local radio. Nonfiction
has long been my medium – it's literature to me.
To sample my work and world, please peruse the links above and check out my latest news and views to the right.
Coming Fall 2014 from Chicago Review Press: my epic nonfiction book,"Blood in the Fields: Ten years inside California's Nuestra Familia Gang."
And be sure to check out my new curated site of gang and violence prevention news and research, calgangs.org.
