I just received word that Pangolin Review will publish my poem “Waiting” in April. They’e a great little magazine that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. When it’s published I will submit the website and you can read it and leave a comment, if you wish. My fourth poetry chapbook “Not As It Seems” will be published in November and I will keep you updated as to when you can purchase a copy.

Poetry Chapbook Accepted

I am thrilled to announce that Kelsay Books has accepted my poetry manuscript “Not As it Seems” to publish. Thank you to Karen of Kelsay Books for the acceptance. The contract has already been signed and I’m just waiting for a pubication date. The book will be for sale on Amazon. I will keep my readers updated.

My Short Story

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.

My 1st Chapbook

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:     

                                                Lost Identity

As night fills the February sky,

I watch a woman

packing items in a bag.

Tattered clothes
