Escaping Shangrila is a clever collection of poems written in a biting and sardonic, narrative free-flowing style in the effort to both shock and repel, and absorb its readers, as a social and cultural, spiritual and psycho-logical comment and satire of what it means to survive and thrive in the cookie-cutter conformist bland and barren atmosphere and land of contemporary America.

The poems and essays in The Kentucky Vein deal with our connection to nature, exploring lessons learned from tobacco fields under harsh sun, the lifecycle of quarried stone, childless tricycles, and the grass of a new subdivision asking where the foals have gone.

The six stories in Tornado and Other Seasons peer at the delicate divide between social normalcy and individualism, between the logic of emotions and the unpredictability of life. The central theme of each story is caprice: the best-laid plans in an otherwise orderly day can take a sharp turn upon encountering a hitchhiker, a death in the family, or a sudden change in the weather.

In a shadowy world of fleeting half-truths, where masks and personas are often assumed, very often, it's logic tempered by the unconscious urge, the irrational will, influenced by trauma and past mis-education, that helps form the final decision, for better or for worse. It's in both meanings of the term that the characters in these poems exhibit a fuzzy logic in everyday life.
