I was born into a family of readers and I gobbled up books from an early age.  My father Basil Burwell loved wordplay and storytelling and published novels and poetry.  I grew up in Norwalk, Connecticut and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and remember trailing after my parents through the nooks and crannies of second hand bookstores and the crowded booths of flea markets in search of paper treasure.  I became interested in writing when I was ten years old, started keeping a diary that I still write, and began creating my own tales.   After college in Vermont and Wisconsin, I followed my interest in editing and served as Associate Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the Beloit Fiction Journal and as publisher and editor of Acorn Whistle magazine.  I’ve published short fiction and non-fiction on a variety of topics, including baseball, rock ‘n’ roll and American history.  I live with my wife and son in Beloit, Wisconsin.   Prairie Hill is my first novel.
