“The tiny body is on a cold, silver table with a white sheet covering it, and I want to look away, but I can’t.” – excerpt, (first paragraph, actually.) from a loosely titled novel of mine entitled ‘stars, but no heaven‘ Advertisements

writing (a) novel(s)

i’ve finished writing a novel. a few people have asked advice. i will make another post about what the hell i plan on doing with it, because… i have no idea! i think i’ve decided to go the old-fashioned route and send it to literary agents rather than self-publish (for now), consequently, probably building an […]

art is long, time is short.

this blog is for writing poetry and stories. i’ve been missing from here lately, because i’ve devoted a lot more time to personal endeavors (working on several short stories, self publishing the poetry book i’ve mentioned, and finishing a full-length novel.) i’ve also been depressed. i usually would have never admitted that, but in this […]

“she brings curses” will be featured in “entombed in verse: an epitaph for salem.”

some months ago, i wrote a poem for an anthology chiefly interested in salem history (no, not this one!) and it was accepted for publication. it’ll be featured in the upcoming book named above. you can find more details about it [HERE]. that will apparate you to a pre-order page, but you can read the […]

lie there, lie there, little henry lee                 till the flesh drops from your bones          for the girl you have in that merry green land can wait forever for you to come home
