About William

I have written ten novels and four narrative nonfiction titles. Most people cannot write because they have not been told it is alright to write what you think. I work on freeing up students to feel what they write and use stream of conciousness as a technique to get the work flowing. I have written ten novels and every one of them comes from the same well. Writing is something of a mystery and teeachers can only deiphcer some of the mystery. A lot of new writers need someone outside the classroom to nudge them along.

Saying that I write from ear. Students have to learn to hear language if they are going to control their prose. This is instinctual for a lot of writers but students have to be given permission. This allows the student to start to hear the music of their fiction. I have always believed everyone has a natural voice unique to them and that this voice has to coaxed out into the open. This is what every writer of fiction knows.

My credentials are that of a professional author. I was the Writer in Residence for the Hemingway Foundation. I have taught fiction writing at Columbia college and Elmhurst College.
