Hello my friends and Happy Friday! I want to share some exciting news with you AND the cover of my new collection of short stories, (Mostly) True Tales From Birchmont Village. I’m putting the finishing touches on it now for release later this month, but in the meantime, here’s a little blurb to give you an idea of what it’s about – and, as usual, more details will follow!

Meet the residents of Birchmont Village, a close-knit community of quirky characters and eccentrics who, despite their differences, and disagreements, and petty annoyances, always pull together in times of trial and tribulation. Through it all, these townsfolk support one another and, in the process, a lesson is learned, music plays and s’mores are prepared over the warmth of a glowing fire pit. So come along for a year in their lives!

Hello, and Happy Derby! In case you haven’t heard, we have a little horse race in Louisville today – back on the first Saturday in May where it belongs. To celebrate, here’s a short story I wrote that takes place on Derby Day – “The Time Chubz the Cat Went Missing.” This is part of a series of stories centered around the (mostly) fictional community of Birchwood Village titled (Mostly) True Tales from Birchwood Village. And I’m excited to announce that I will be publishing all of these stories – seven in all – in one collection this summer! More details to follow …

Hello everyone, and happy Friday! I just posted a new short story – “Critter” – to my Medium page. It deals with the anxieties that might arise as the world starts to slowly reopen and we enter this sort of new “new normal.” Occasionally I like posting on Medium just to get my writing out there and not have to wait on the sometimes (or oftentimes!) frustrating submission process. Enjoy, and have a pleasant weekend!

I’m excited to have my short, short story, “The Girl With Bags Under Her Eyes,” included in this year’s edition of Literary LEO – the annual creative competition sponsored by the Louisville-based arts & entertainment and community-focused publication LEO Weekly. I wrote this a few years ago, daydreaming one lazy afternoon in a coffee shop about how people can drift in and out of our lives without us ever really getting to know them, sad in a way, but hopefully something we can learn from to try and make an effort to connect. Click on the link and scroll down to find it, and check out all the other excellent writing (not to say necessarily that my writing is excellent, but well, you know what I mean), and some really rad photos too – I’m proud to be in such good company!

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!

Announcements

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!
