I've been a North Carolina Writers Network writer-in-residence at Peace College under Doris Betts' guiding hand. In the early '90s, I was the editor of a small literary journal,The Rural Sophisticate, based in Georgia. My work has appeared in The Rockhurst Review, Elysian Fields Quarterly,Cooweescoowee, Under The Sun, Gihon River Review, Reflections Literary Journal,and at thesquaretable.com, raving dove, Sport Literate, the Externalist, and R.KV.R.Y in electronic form. My non-fiction piece, Grandpa Tom's Cane, won the 2007 North Carolina Writers Network Rose Post Award for creative non-fiction.
Two rather long works are in progress or marketing:
A historical fiction novel set between 1939 and 1945 and involving the very brutal conflict between Germany and The Soviet Union.
A piece of long fiction involving two old friends - one, a rather traditional person. The other is a visionary thinker, now committed to nihilism and terrorism. Both are committed to the friendship, but both know in the end there must be a showdown between their different social views.
Writing, raising fish, vegetable and fruit gardening, carpentry, walking, reading, home repair.
