I am thrilled that my short story, “Sketches Past and Present” was a finalist for the 2013 Eric Hoffer Award for short prose and is published in the anthology Best New Writing 2013. You can buy the anthology from Amazon here.

“Something’s Different About Sheila,” an excerpt from my novel, THE SWORD SWALLOWER’S DAUGHTER, appeared in the February 12, 2012 edition of MetroMom’s Fiction.
