From a Box in the Attic
This is a selection of creative and critical writing, now in its 2nd edition. Included are creative non-fiction, experimental fiction, drama (plays) and essays; the chapter of poetry includes a varied selection from my archives (including haiku and limericks)--some from the 1900's.
This edition contains new content, a short story, as well as a section of author commentary on each included piece. More
This anthology, now released in its second edition, contains a good sampling of my early writing. Many of the poems, for example, date back to the early 1990s and the creative nonfiction piece, "The Day My Daughter Died", was written in 2006. All the pieces that appeared in the first edition have been reedited, cleaned up and touched up to provide a better overall reading experience.
New content has been added in the form of a short fiction piece as well as author commentary on each piece in the anthology. The extra story that I have added was a submission To the America's Next Author social writing contest. It is entitled "Force", however this is a working title and may change.
I prefer to write literary fiction and drama. I strive for pieces with a strong didactic and that follow in the footsteps of the great social commentators. Readers will notice a strong radical flavor in my writing; this is due to my ideology which began forming when I was still a young child.
Just last week I made the decision to jump into writing fiction full-time. This means that a lot more writing be coming your way in the near future. Look for more experimental fiction and poetry as well as cross-genre pieces. Novel length works are in the writing process and will be published as they are completed.
My author website as well as a blog with variable, but always interesting, themes are in the making. Please check back often for updates on these two things.
My most heartfelt gratitude to all my readers. Be well and keep chewing up those books. Reading is good for you and writing is good for me.
