Sorrow, Joys, and Writing

The sorrow is that my father died last April. His work remains available:

The joys are my children: Amaya has joined Isaac in the baby brigade.

New writing has emerged in several recent publications:

1. My short story “What You Know and What You Don’t” was an honorable mention in The Saturday Evening Post’s Great American Fiction Contest for 2020: the story is available in The Saturday Evening Post’s annual anthology of top entries.

2. Another short story “The Nowhere Place” was published in the anthology Horror USA: California published by Soteira Press in late 2019.

3. A third story “Men of Integrity” was also published the end of 2019–in Pennsylvania Literary Journal. vol. 11. issue 3.

4. Earlier in Fall 2019 Writing Texas published a satirical tale I wrote called “Succulent Ribs.”
