Update – January 2012

I've got a few more online events to share.  First, my piece for the Story Prize Blog, where I answer questions about my writing process, favorite authors, and the techincal problems I face in crafting a short story.  Many thanks to editor Larry Dark for that one. Rachel Endsley...

Interviews and Author Statements

I'm please to offer links to some interviews and author statements.  First, in David Abrams' blog, The Quivering Pen, about my first publication.  Meg Pokrass did me proud by including me on her blog, Fictionaut Five.  Former editor and Press 53 family member Clifford Garstang...

Anticipation

In about ten more minute, the President will address the nation.  The media has been buzzing about it for days, and the Republicans have taken every chance possible to make sure we all understand how weak and incompetent the President is, and how wonderful, brilliant,...

All The Roads That Lead From Home

I'm thrilled to announce the publication of my story collection, All The Roads That Lead From Home, on October 1, 2011 by Press 53....

And May I Introduce . . . .

Good Thinking

Well, you did it, you nitwit voters.  Called them all back to spew more of their nonsense about taxes and the evils of government spending.  You, the great middle-class, whose numbers are far larger than any other strata of our country, you're the ones to...

Holding Our Breath

We're all holding our breath, waiting for the results of the mid-term elections.  Once again, the media have favored the Republicans before those results are even in.  Polls have become the modern-day crystal ball; pundits are like the ancients reading the goat entrails.  Can we...

One World to Another – Thoughts on Artistic Media

Portrait of Ambroise Vollard, by Pablo Picasso I have always loved Cubism.  Picasso and Braque, the master, the founders, if you will.  I always loved the idea of breaking things down to essential elements, and recombining them into new images.  Last night I watched a...
