Just arrived in the mailbox! Happy to publish “Behind the Wheel” with California State University’s literary journal.
Out today in The Barcelona Review…my short story about a dog’s memorable day.
In Doubleback Review today, “Say it was Love,” an essay first published in Underwired Literary Magazine in 2011. Doubleback reprints pieces that appeared in lit mags that are now defunct, giving them new life. A fantastic project, given that many journals struggle to stay open.
Looking forward to seeing my short piece, “Matchbox,” in the pages of the journal, Brilliant Flash Fiction. Check back for the link in January.
I’m thrilled that my essay, “Say It Was Love,” previously published in Underwired Literary Magazine, will be given a second life in Doubleback Review. A wonderful journal that celebrates writing from publications that no longer exist, Doubleback keeps the words alive and in circulation. Watch this space for the link.
I’m thrilled to report that one of my favorite characters, a labrador named Marvin, has found a home in the pages of The Barcelona Review, an international journal of contemporary fiction. Check back in November for the link…and a proper send-off.
Watch this space for my short story, “Behind the Wheel,” upcoming in The Concrete Desert Review, the literary magazine of California State University. I’m honored to publish with this journal.
I’m delighted and a bit stunned to have several of my little paintings published today on Detour Ahead, an online project for artists and writers. The exhibition features work done during the pandemic. Having had hundreds of stories published in some spiffy places, I must say that this is uniquely humbling.
After rereading my first published essay, a piece about race and elections in The Chicago Tribune in 1989, I was disheartened by the relevance it still has and was inspired to put together a selection of 51 published stories with similarly pertinent messages. They have been stored in my portfolios, as hard copies, a number of them never having flown through the ethers on the World Wide Web. So, herewith, a heartfelt and (I hope) lively, funny and meaningful collection of cultural observation and personal revelation, from 1989 to present day. I’d be honored if you’d purchase a copy.
A selection of 51 of my published essays, spanning three decades of cultural commentary and personal revelation, is coming this week. Happy to have them in one place.
