Cover Artwork for “The Dogs Don’t Bark In Brooklyn Any More” to be Revealed Next Week.

Thanks to Dagda Publishing for another kind mention in its weekly newsletter today; the cover artwork for my upcoming novel, “The Dogs Don’t Bark In Brooklyn Any More,” should be revealed next week.


“Confession” receives very positive reader response.

I received a very gracious note today from the good folks over at Dead Beats Literary Blog.  They informed me that my poem, “Confession,” which was published there yesterday, received more than 70 “notes” — “likes,” “reblogs” and positive comments.  This is an unusual amount for a single piece, they explained.

I am very grateful — both to Dead Beats and to their readers who reacted so kindly to my work.  🙂

Every Day Fiction features “The Silver Leaf”

Every Day Fiction today featured my very short story, “The Silver Leaf.”  This is an extremely short vignette about two lost souls in the Irish Republican Army, on the eve of a midnight mission, who briefly ponder the perils of being “real.”
This will be my first professionally published short story, and the staff of Every Day Fiction was quite gracious and easy to work with.  I’m grateful to them for welcoming me into the community there.

Dead Beats Literary Blog features my poem, “Confession”


I am honored to be able to share that Dead Beats Literary Bog today kindly published my poem, “Confession.”

This is a poem that is not for everybody, due to its darker themes and sexual imagery, as well as its criticism of organized religion. It definitely drew mixed reactions from people to whom I had shown it before submission.

I still stand by the piece, however, and I am quite grateful for Dead Beats for allowing me a forum for a poem like this.



“Iridescent Green Sharks” attracts readers.

My self-published long story, “Iridescent Green Sharks,” drew at least a moderate following on Wattpad.com, attracting 70 readers in the two days since it appeared on Sunday. This wasn’t quite as wide an audience that I had hoped for, but at least there was a good number of people out there who read the story.

I’m grateful for the indispensable support and feedback from good friends like Michael Stanhope, Tina Zabbo and Doug Mann, who were quite generous toward me as always.

“Iridescent Green Sharks” can be found here:


Quick note — I added a “Stories” page here following my self-publication yesterday of “Iridescent Green Sharks” at Wattpad.com. The next entry on the page will be Every Day Fiction’s publication of “The Silver Leaf” on Thursday.

I’ve been lucky to find some success with poetry since first seeking publication last November (as well as my upcoming novel), and I would like to focus more on publishing short stories. I have a few submitted at various markets; I’ll post links if they are accepted for publication.


October finds me in the mood to try new things, and so I have self-published a tragic story entitled “Iridescent Green Sharks” on the wonderful website, Wattpad.com. This story is dedicated to Audrey Hanson.

“Iridescent Green Sharks” is the story of Sean and Maryanne, lifelong friends, storytellers, and lovers of words, who inevitably come to love each other. Yet divergent paths in life can make love, art and even life itself suffer – or ultimately be destroyed.

The story is a bit long, at just over 11,000 words. It can be viewed here:
