About this author

I've had a brief naval career and a longer one as a civil engineer in Georgia. During the early '90s, I was the editor of a small literary journal, The Rural Sophisticate, based in Georgia. In 2003, I was a North Carolina Writers Network writer-in-residence at Peace College under the late Doris Betts' guiding hand. My work has appeared in The Rockhurst Review, Elysian Fields Quarterly, Cooweescoowee, Under The Sun, Gihon River Review, Reflections Literary Journal, and at, raving dove, Sport Literate, The Externalist, Language and Culture, and R.KV.R.Y in electronic form. I also have two novels and one novella to my credit. A collection of connected short stories will be published late in 2012 or early 2013.

I’m truly fortunate in being able to keep writing and in having my work published. This Saturday, March 15, 2014, a dystopian novella of mine will be launched as an e-book. The name? We Are Strong, But We Are Fragile.
