Back Cover Excerpt: Life’s beauty was there in the sweep of stars, some dying, some being born, some long dead but still shining for the time being, and those were his stars, glimmering like blood diamonds in a constellation of shame. His vision blurred with a warning of tears, mocking his claim on indifference. Pulling knees into chest, he braced for impact, as the same throe of despair circled back around, hitting him square in the heart, just as hard as it did the day her body was found…

Book Summary: These stories range in setting from rural Texas to a small village in Kenya with themes that tackle the dangers of biotech’s effort to promise eternal youth, the callousness of modern medicine, the double standard women are forced to bear, and the insanity brought on by decades of global betrayal and mistrust. Some are comically wrought while others read like a vision of a deeply dystopian world. Only, that world is here and now.

Book Summary:  Fructus Autumni Auctorum is a duology containing re-written editions of Taxicab to Wichita and Bus Back to Omaha.

“Taxicab to Wichita is an epic of the senses, exploring uncharted regions of writing in a way that will stir your mind and challenge your heart” —Colm Herron, author of Further Adventures of James Joyce and For I Have Sinned. “A hallucinogenic forest stream of the mind. At its heart, this book is an existential and meta-fictional riff on self-doubt and guilt, but let us not despair, it is also funny and ironic. If you love a good trip, Bus Back to Omaha travels well.” —Duke Miller, author of Living and Dying with Dogs, and Malverde Days.

Book Summary:  Stories and poems mirroring lives out of synch with time and space – the schemers, the heroes, those washed away and forgotten – all of us who try to find answers and a safe place to dream.  At the center, the disembodied voice of a man carried to Malverde on the backs of minnows and in love with a mystical being who is only 1/4 human.

Book Summary:  A disjointed journey through a long list of wars and refugee catastrophes with everything you probably don’t want to know about.  Sex, drugs, drinking, gambling, death, dying, and destruction.  Never carry a gun, always act innocent, and keep questions to a minimum because eventually you may not like the answers.  Emergency refugee relief from the mud up.  The big birds at Oxfam and the UN would not approve.
