This page lists the various fiction projects I am working on or contemplating.

The Communion of Saints.

The Communion of Saints tells the story of James Jacoby, a gay, black, newly-Episcopalian intellectual fleeing his anti-gay, Fundamentalist Christian past, who has come to an academically-renowned yet not-so-openly conservative Seminary looking for a vocation, Christian community and (maybe) a Christian husband. When James decides not only to come out as gay but also to be a rallying point for other LGBTQs and allies on campus, he finds that his vocation, his very presence on campus, and his relationship with the closeted roommate he has come to love are placed in jeopardy. This is a work in progress.
