I’m a novelist, playwright, director and independent producer.

My 17 novels, including THE CIPHER, SKIN, BUDDHA BOY, TALK, HEADLONG, and the UNDER THE POPPY trilogy, have won awards, been multiply translated, and optioned for film and performance. My short fiction has appeared in numerous year’s best anthologies, and I served as editor on The Year’s Best Weird Fiction 2.

CHRISTOPHER WILD is upcoming in 2017.

My work combines and crosses genres, from YA to horror to historical to whatever comes next, from novels to solo and ensemble performances.

My ensemble, nerve, is based in Detroit, where we create events with words, movement, music, darkness, noise, pleasure, and surprise. THE GLITTER KING is in process for 2018.
