Hello! I hope the weather is holding up alright wherever you are. It’s cold and dreary in KY, and it’s got me missing concerts, and live music, and mosh pits – so I posted this short story, The Pit, on my Medium page. Throw your hands up in the air and enjoy!
Happy Saturday once again! So I had a great conversation the other night with the cast and crew of my play “Geese” that’s part of this first season of the virtual theatre festival The Big Break. For those of you who might’ve missed it live on Twitch (and I’m sorry I wasn’t able to post it in advance but it sort of sneaked up on me), here’s a link where you can catch a full replay. It was a fun time, there are some super talented actors involved, and I can’t wait to see the full production!

For those of you waiting for a link to my Twitch interview in support of my play “Geese” on The Big Break – that’s been postponed one week, until next Thursday. But I’ll post the info on that as soon as I get it.
Happy New Year, and I hope that 2021 is off to a good start for everyone! I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be a Guest Editor for the upcoming Issue 8 of Fleas on the Dog. This is a really great lit mag, and if you haven’t seen it before, I suggest you check it out. They’ve published a couple of my short stories and one of my plays. And speaking of plays, I’ll be participating in a live discussion on Twitch this Thursday (1/21) at 8 PM EST for my play “Geese” as part of the virtual theatre festival The Big Break. I’ll be joined by the actors and crew, so it should be fun. I’ll post the link once I get it!
I just posted a short story – “Sad Bar” – to my Medium page. I consider this a companion piece to my collection, The Sadie Stories, which (hopefully, knock wood, fingers crossed …) will be out next year after being delayed this year what with everything that’s happened. It’s not actually part of this collection, but it fits within the overarching story, and perhaps at some point I’ll include it in a second collection of stories involving these characters.
I’ve decided to package my short stories from Birchwood Village (there are seven in all) into one collection called (Mostly) True Stories from Birchwood Village and send it out for submission. I’m pleased to announce that Variant Literature has included it in its “longlist of titles that generated significant discussion.” Of course, once this collection of stories lands somewhere for publication I’ll be sure to post about it here!
Hi everyone! So two weeks ago I participated in a roundtable discussion with some of the other writers of The Big Break that was broadcast live on Twitch. Well I found the recording of it, and I’ve posted a link HERE. I guess since it was live, it took a little bit to get going, but just fast forward to around the 14 minute mark and that’s when it starts. And as always, enjoy!
Need something for a case of the Mondays? My new comedy, “Social Distancing” – about a couple trying to keep it together in the wake of a global pandemic (sound familiar?), with one of them handling it much better than the other, until they find the silver lining – will be featured on tonight’s episode of Earworm Audio Theatre at 6 PM ET, and thereafter you can catch it on many platforms, including Apple podcasts, Spotify and iHeartRadio. I hope you enjoy!
