​A short-story writer and novelist based in LA. I write Science Fiction, Fantasy, Surreal-Horror, “Insert-Adjective-Here”-Punk and all sort of weird nonsense.

I received my B.A. in Biology from the University of Chicago in 2014, then made a hard pivot into the world of fiction. I have previously publish short fiction pieces in the online magazines: “Space Squid,” “Literally Stories,” “Silver Blade,” and “Allegory.” I am currently completing my MFA in Creative Writing at Calarts, and have a novel in the works…

Congratulations, Noah, on your publishing contract! 

“It was awesome being part of the [OZMA] competition, and I think being [earning a First Place position] helped my book stand out when I was sending to Tiny Fox. Have a great day!” Noah
Comments from the CIBA OZMA Judges:
  • Excellent crafting of a captivating story, setting an old-school, 1940s-style detective in a dark and dystopic world full of paranoia and ever-present dangers.
  • Details of day-to-day survival are smartly imagined, making it easy to sink one’s teeth into the plot.
  • Kudos to the author for making the various humanoid and non-human species believable and the physics and resources of this strange place seem perfectly acceptable.
