Fiction Needs to Be Read

Writers are often a masochistic bunch and not always good at saying, "Hey, you have some time? Look at this." But the writer needs the reader, symbiotically, in order that his work mean something beyond the agony of composing a beautiful sentence. That being the case, he has a responsibility to the work, to make it known. Thus, I urge you to take a moment to read two recently published stories of mine.

A short flash fiction piece, That's Some Good Tea was recently published in The Molotov Cocktail. I also placed Our Treasured Future with The Adirondack Review.  It's about parenthood, punks, and a panda. This is my zoo story.

I've just returned from three weeks in India photographing tribes, nomads, and gypsies in the far west frontier of India's Kutch region, near the south Pakistani border. It was a challenging journey but worth it. Still I'm glad to be home...
