Merriment for May


We writers get many rejections, so no wonder we become giddy with joy when success smiles on us.

My poem, “Falling Shells” was just accepted by Poetry Quarterly/Prolific Press.
My short story “Cottonwood Grove” is going to be included in a Cane Hollow Press anthology of Westerns. That short story is also available as a single story on Amazon
