Baltimore Style Features Father-Son Travel Story on Poland


Last summer, my 12-year-old son, Alex, and I went on an adventure exploring Poland for a couple weeks. It was the first time the two of us traveled abroad alone, just the two of us, without the rest of the family. It was a great experience.

This month, Baltimore Style Magazine published my travel story about our experiences in Warsaw and Krakow as the issue's travel feature.

Get your hands on a copy of the glossy print magazine at any bookstore. Or, check it out online at the link below.

Flint Hills Review Publishes Elephant in the Womb

Flint Hills Review is an annual literary journal published by Emporia State University. The 2017 issue is hot off the press, and features my short piece, "Elephant in the Womb."

"Elephant in the Womb" is a story that was part of an earlier draft of Womb: a novel in utero. The scene was deleted because I decided some of the actions in the scene were not in character with Penny or Stan.

Consider this the deleted scene of the home edition! To read "Elephant in the Womb," get your hands on a copy of Flint Hills Review.
