Bio:

I'm an American Jewish male of mostly-Polish descent, born in 1960, married with two children. I was born in Michigan but now live in Rhode Island. I work as a Professor of Legal Studies; my other occupations or part-time jobs have included lawyer, actor, IT project manager. My hobbies include pottery, science fiction and amateur astronomy (don't even *begin* to mention the Astronomy OWL in OoP to my face).

I first heard of HP in 2000 when Terri Gross interviewed Jo on the radio; I've been hooked pretty much ever since.

I love to write, but haven't written any fiction for more than 20 years -- until I got the idea of doing some HP FF, and here I am.

My fiction is also posted on Phoenix Song (same pen name there as here), and on SIYE (except for stories that wouldn't be appopriate there). I have a satire of shipping in general and H/G shipping in particular posted there -- the story is called "A Slow Boat to Shipper's Hell", published under the name "kschneyer".

I will also try to post all of my stuff on my livejournal page, where I am known as "Rhetoretician."

Bragging: So far I've had:


  1. A "Featured Story" here (Counting to Five Thousand),which also won Runner Up for Dark/Angsty Fiction in the Silver Quills for 2007;

  2. A winner of the Dumbledore Silver Trinket Award for one-shots on SIYE (Minding the Baby);

  3. A First Prize for Fiction in the Phoenix Rising Challenge (for The Torch, a story that also won Judges' Choice for HP Specific stories in the Quill-to-Parchment competition); and

  4. Another featured story on SIYE (While You Tell Yourself the Truth).


  5. The lovely banner above was created for me by Hansolohpfrk.
