This poem is drawn from my childhood growing up near Minneapolis, so I’m excited to see it appear in a Minnesota journal! The link below includes an audio file. I recently read “The Crossing” before a jazz band at the San Francisco Writers Festival, which was great fun, so when you listen to the audio you can imagine a slow, bluesy jazz progression in the background.
The short story “Sack the Quarterback” is available in an anthology from Spank the Carp. Very nice to see the story in printed! Available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1546955615
We are always younger in our memories…
Extended the excerpt from Lucky Rice, please read and enjoy. The novel is now complete!
This poem is inspired by a real baseball my grandfather gave me. I still have it some place, and one day I will sniff it out.

My website was surprisingly easy to set up in WordPress. I found some excellent “how to” instructions from Jane Friedman on the web, and WordPress has a number of free templates that already have built in menus and pages. I chose “Penscratch 2” because I liked the clean look. I bought a WordPress plan because it includes hosting, which for me is much easier than self-hosting, and there are no ads and plenty of storage. I have a premium plan (about $96/year), but a personal plan (about $48/year) would probably work just as well for me.
Here are the how-to links I mentioned:
The Friedman articles have other useful links.
There are many options for website design, tools and hosting, of course, but this approach worked for me.
