About Me

My photo
I write and live with my beautiful wife, Sandra, and sons (Solstice, Finnegan and Brahms) in a little-big house on a dirt road in a valley in the hills. My secret identity struggles through the grind of teaching high school English to the denizens of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

"The Voice from the Tree" will see print!

My short fantasy story, "The Voice from the Tree" will see print in Brain Soup Magazine. I woke up this morning to find three responses. This was the winner. I am very excited about the thought of this story in print. It is a study in stubborn preseverence. I wrote this re-telling of the events of Genesis for an Anthology last summer. I loved it and wanted it so badly to make the cut. Eventually I heard from them and it was the last story cut from the anthology. I took my chances with a few other places, and I was even told I had written a good story, but the editor, being religious, couldn't in conscience publish it. I suppose it is a bit apocraphyl. But to me, it isn't so much about religion as it is about the human spirit, simians, and aliens. Well, I look forward to reading Brain Soup Magazine. I have listed the link below.

I realized today that I have sold 50% of the stories I have written in the past eight months. That's not bad. I would make one heck of a baseball player batting .500. Well, I will keep writing when I can...
