“Little Men” now appears in Prime Number Magazine. I was told it was the fastest acceptance they’d ever made for a poetry piece! You may need to scroll down, as poems are listed alphabetically by author.

Aaaannnnnd, The Land of Stone and River is now available for preorder!

Excited about the cover, above, for my debut poetry collection, The Land of Stone and River, forthcoming January 2022 from Moon City Press! I love Nancy Martin’s work and am so happy to be able to use a detail from “New Land IV” for the cover. Check out more of her paintings!

My long short story, “Path of Service,” is now up at The Write Launch. Because of the length, it might be most comfortable to read on a laptop or tablet, or save it to Pocket and grab it on your e-reader from there. Enjoy–it’s a sad but, I happen to think, pretty funny story.
