Hello All. After a long hiatus, I am returning to my passion for poetry writing. My recent poetry credits include a second place finish in the Poetrysoup "Grace and Solitude", rhyming poetry contest, publication in Dissident Voice,The Magnolia Review, The Opiate Magazine and Tuck Magazine. Decades ago, my poems appeared in numerous small press journals including Visions International, Cafeteria, Gargoyle, and West End Magazine. Through Black Buzzard Press, I also published a chapbook of poems titled "Native Steel” in 1982. I have also written published short fiction. Over the years, my stories have appeared in The Lake Superior Review, Intuitive Explorations, Baltimore's Lite Literary Magazine, and Alien Skin.  Feel free to contact me if you would like further information. Thanks!
