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.

Busy writing...

I have done some massive editing of two stories in the past two days. Both I shaved off over 2,000 words and was pretty happy with the results. One of them: "The Back Seat was Empty" became a flash fiction piece and will see print with "To Serve the Weird" in Static Movement's Something from the Attic anthology.

I also wrote a 5,500 word story about love, horror and apples on the eve of World War II. It was a fun story to write and I think it is one of my good ones. We'll see if it makes the cut.

If my wife continues to be so supportive and let me shut myself away,I'll continue to peck away at The Hairy Monster Book. It is going along great, I just shouldn't let myself get so distracted. It's not easy, I have a lot of ideas!

Well, if you don't hear from me till later, have a Happy Halloween!!!
