I’m proud to announce that the Pupkewitz Foundation has selected my children’s short story “No More Peanut Butter in the Jelly Jar” along with 13 other authors out of at least 180 stories to be made into a digital audio book for underprivileged children in Namibia. In this school area the children from 2nd to 12th grades lack English and there aren’t any school or town libraries. They are barely able to move from grade to grade. You may read my short story on http://www.shortkidstories.com.
My 100 word story was published last Friday on Friday Flash Fiction. It’s about 12 stories down from the top. Each Friday a new group of stories is published. Check it out: www.flashfridayfridayfiction.com/100-word-stories. My story is “Don’ Prejudge the Worth of Someone on Outward Appearance”.
If you like my poetry on this site I still have a few chapbooks left. The book “Reality of Life” was published by Springfed Chapbook Series. A poem follows:
As night fills the February sky,
I watch a woman
packing items in a bag.
on a stooped body

I just received word that my photo “Lovely Red” was a finalist in the May contest. There were 4000 submission and the top 700 were finalists.
I’m thrilled to announce that the magazine Plants and Poetry accepted four of my flower photos for their July issue.
Also they will plant a flower in honor of the submission.
I will post the link for the magazine when it’s available.
When my poem “Planting Flowers” is published I will post it. It was accepted by the Underwriters Poets of Maine. The theme was isolation.
Acceptances are slow these days as many magazines are folding.
Treat your children or grandchildren to a cute little story about Peter John.
Peter John tries so hard to put his jacket on the right way and his shoes also but he never seems to do anything right because he’s young. He admires his brother and tries so hard to copy him.
