“Ray’s Juice,” is now live and online at Foundling Review!
Farmer’s market season is just around the corner, even if last night’s deep freeze toasted the magnolia blossoms to shriveled, frost-burned blooms. Which makes this a perfect time for a story that takes place under the stars surrounded by abundance and bitty bites brownies.
I’m honored to have “Ray’s Juice” included in the March issue of Foundling Review, “where simple pleasures are corralled into folds of finely finessed sentences.”

Kestrel, Issue 29, Fall 2012 has arrived, and with it my short story, “The Messenger.” Some lovely writing in this issue, both poetry and fiction. This is a print publication, so you can either order it from the website, here, or contact me directly.
The arrival of my short story, “The Messenger,” is imminent! Galleys have been approved and are at the printer, and Kestrel 29 should be off the press by January 10th.
Kestrel, which comes out of Fairmont, West Virginia, takes its name from the family of small falcons found throughout the world; the word ‘kestrel’ derives from the sound of the falcon’s distinctive cry. The journal has published work from the U.S., Canada, Ireland, France, Haiti, etc.
Also coming soon, news of Kestrel’s Spring Celebration, at which I will be reading, as well as a link with information about how to purchase copies of the journal (or anyone interested can always contact me directly).
