So proud to announce the publication of my latest Haiku in the wonderful Haiku Journal, issue #63. There are 50 poems, as always, in these publications and they are available to read for free here: https://haikujournal.org/e-issues/
My short story “Sometimes You Must” has been included in the latest Clarendon House anthology, Blaze!
There are times in life when we face things not of our making. Things that terrify us. Yet somehow we find the courage to face them just the same. Please enjoy this small tale of such a moment in one person’s life.
My latest short story, “Islands,” is now live in the April issue of the Front Porch Review. <– Click to read.
(PLEASE NOTE: Front Porch Review had a computer problem and lost their website. Their new site is up, but all of my stories there were, apparently, lost. At this time, I’m not sure if they will be recovered.)
I was thrilled to receive the following in my email by a reader of this story:
I just wanted to say BRILLIANT!
I’ve just read your piece in the Front Porch Review and it evoked for me many memories and feelings about my relationship with my mother. The details, obliviously, are not the same, but the spirit of the unknown, the possible causes of what was behind my mother’s behavior towards me, came bursting through to me in your story.
Needless to say, this email made my day.
I hope you will enjoy this story, as well. If you do, reviews are always appreciated.
