Howard-Cover 2Welcome to my personal website.  My long-form memoir Found Wanting is  now available on Kindle at, as an audio-book at, or in print in Volume 3 of the Ploughshares Solos Omnibus. And I’ve recently republished my essay “‘Out of sound – Out of sight’: Emily Dickinson and the Poetics of Trauma” on the WordPress platform.

my path
Work and Technology

I began my career as an investigative journalist exploring the impact of new technologies on work.  This project culminated in my book  Brave New Workplace, published by The Viking Press (Elisabeth Sifton Books) in 1985.

Literary Criticism and Creative Nonfiction

Recently, I have turned a growing share of my attention to literary criticism and creative nonfiction.  My long-form memoir Found Wanting was published by the literary magazine Ploughshares in 2014.
