Thanks for checking out my new site! I plan to share professional news and other writing on this page.
These past few weeks as I've transitioned back into full-time writing have been some of the best so far in my life. My first short story was published. You can purchase the pdf version here online:
or at many independent bookstores in major cities. Here's a list:
They were the first guys to publish me years ago-- the last time I submitted any work for publication were some essays straight out of college--and I am HUGELY grateful to them. Specifically David LaBounty who worked closely with me on the edits and gave me a lot of wonderful guidance.
And if that wasn't enough I had my first poem accepted for publication by Apollo's Lyre, an online literary journal. The poem will be available on the e-zine March 20. It's entitled "A Dream Both Voluptuous and Sincere."
And lucky writer that I am I also had a great time working with their poetry editor, Michele M. Graf, who provided me with invaluable insights into the editing process and really helped me workshop the poem into its final stage.
That's all my news for now! Please check back again soon since there'll be a lot of changes as I get back up to speed after taking the last few years off to study and work in theater.
