Winter Outdoor Popcorn Vendor

The True Story of How I Met Bill Cosby, Joe Nameth, and Ali McGraw in One Winter Week While Selling Popcorn

It was the winter of 1970 and I had a week to kill in New York City. I spent it selling popcorn from a cart near the Plaza Hotel. It was a truly memorable experience.

A Heavy Lady to Dance With

After spending several months hitchhiking around Europe in the early 1970s, I lived for a time on an abandoned sailing ship in a Copenhagen harbor while supporting myself as a street musician.

The memoir is now on Kindle and Nook.

Three Stories From My College Years

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.’

Blood on My Hands Nominated for 2012 Texas Tayshas List

I believe this list is used by school libraries throughout Texas, so it involves a lot of schools.

Wordsworth, the lazy, loveable, talking Basset hound has come back to life in digital form!

These beginning chapter books for grades 1 - 3 are great bedtime read-alouds.

I don't know him, but I'm told he lives around here. Long Beach is one of our closest breaks. This was shot as Irene approached. Please watch until the end.
