I wrote these three pieces while I was a student at Beloit College in Wisconsin. They were the first three to be “professionally” published. The first two pieces are fiction. The third is non-fiction.
Looking for Tornadoes, and Inspiration was originally published in Spectrum, a literary magazine published by the University of Massachusetts.
Clap Trap was published in New Writers, a literary magazine published in New York City. Please note: this piece addresses a ‘mature subject,’ and is probably not appropriate for readers under the age of fourteen.
Encounter: ‘I Must Have Looked Frightened’ was published in a well-known newspaper nicknamed ‘The Gray Lady’ and sometimes referred to as ‘the newspaper of record.’
