Grateful to play drums with Markus Hunt's Equity & Social Justice Quartet again, this time for our contribution to a Podcast Series hosted by Carvell Wallace, WHO WE ARE: A CHRONICLE OF RACISM IN AMERICA, a project spun out of a talk by Jeffery Robinson. J JOURNAL has meanwhile accepted "Old Mike's Body," a short story excerpted from one of my novels, to publish in Fall of 2021, and CONFRONTATION will be publishing a poem of mine, "Big Bend," in a future issue.

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.
