My flash fiction piece "Negotiations" was somehow included in the new anthology, "Flash Fiction Funny" edited by Tom Hazuka. After years spent bleeding over novel #2, it's nice to have a new story out.

People claim that cats are so independent that they can't be trained.  That has some truth to it, but not the whole truth.  Our cat, Flash, is pretty clever.  She understands that door handles can generally only be opened by those with opposable thumbs.  While she has tried to...

I've been clicking over to 3:AM Magazine for quite a while now.

 In case you thought I was Missing in Action, here I am. For the last three days I have been immersed in BookExpoAmerica (BEA), the BIG, BIG, BIG annual event of the book industry. This year it was held in Los Angeles. Next year it is scheduled for New York and the year after that in Las Vegas....
