Blind Loyalty? Not For Me

Why must we give the soldiers who defend our country automatic hero status? Most men and women who enlist in the US Army do so with multiple motivations, many of them having nothing to do with patriotism. The author wonders why it is considered almost treasonous to not automatically give the armed forces unquestioning support and endorsement.

Defining piece:

"The Dainty" -- a 12,000 word novella, set in 1969 Detroit: one day in an Irish Pub, and that day is Christmas Eve. The dysfunctional denizens of The Dainty plow through a fierce snowstorm, cocktails, and their personal baggage as Christmas Eve plays out before them.

I am currently at work on a memoIRISH-novel, 'Deadly Dominoes', a haunting, poignant look back on my family's checkered history. The compelling story of a Scots-Irish family whose patriarch brings them (mostly) crashing down, beginning with his one year stay in a Nazi POW camp in WWII in 1943, and culminating in his suicide 36 years later. The prologue, and first four chapters, are written and available upon request.

Many short stories of fiction, and essays on a variety of subjects, are also available.

Currently living in London, England.
