Happy as Norm with his mallard on the 3-cent stamp. IOWA REVIEW took a story of mine, THE RAM AND CHARLIE PRUITT, for its Finalist list to judge Amelia Gray. Hoping next year for the First Class stamp for my even-toed ungulate (Ovis canadensis) and hapless Charlie--unless they find another literary garage.

I write novels, stories, and poems, and sometimes literary criticism. I also play jazz drums. For me, writing is rewriting, so I'll just use this page not so much as a "blog" as a place to post news.
