Resumed writing after forty odd years in foreign intelligence and international sales. Original wife, but after fifty years we are both out of warranty.

Have had a couple hundred short stories and poems published so far, and three books. A collection of my fairy and folk tales, "The Witch Made Me Do It" is published by Gypsy Shadow Press. A novella, "The Witches' Bane," is scheduled for republication in June of 2018, and my collected fantasy/horror stories, "Capricious Visions," from Gnome on Pig Press. A chapbook of individually published poems is currently being shopped around.

Scattered thoughts on writing

My elation from a writing achievement dissipates like coffee steam, but the disappointment from a rejection abides like a pimple.


Am having trouble humanizing my villain. depressing because he reminds me of me.


Revisiting a first draft is like a bad morning after, but the only person I can apologise to is myslef.
