I thoroughly enjoyed hearing all the talented Unsolicited Press authors, and I was honored to be among them.
If you are near Philadelphia or the AWP Conference on Saturday 3/26 at 6pm, please join me for a reading and celebration at Head House Books, 619 S 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA 19147.
I plan to read a few brief passages from my new novel Lucky Ride, and a few poems from The Poet’s Garage.
Share the camaraderie of the open road (and some cheap wine)!
Looking forward to a marathon reading with contributors to Welcome to Philadelphia, a new poetry anthology from Moonstone Press celebrating the 2022 AWP Conference in Philadelphia. I’m honored that the editor, Larry Robins, included my poem “It Starts with Hemingway.”

I recently described my process of transforming Lucky Ride into a novel and read a brief excerpt from Lucky Ride for the California Writer’s Club. Memoirs and novels share many characteristics, but I eventually chose the creative freedom of a novel. In short, I lied.
