Three of his novels and a collection of his stories have been translated into French and published by 13E Note Editions.

He is currently a columnist at THE BIG CLICK. He witnessed two executions in Arizona, invited each time by the prisoner, an experience described in his collection of memoir and reportage, WHY I WATCH PEOPLE DIE.
