New Blog Look

Hi folks.  And welcome to my new site which replaces my quondam antediluvian one that wouldn’t allow me to upload photos.  In latest news, I will be professoring again in the fall at Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Asheville Graduate Center for the M.A. in Writing Program, teaching a graduate Poetry Workshop.

Just finished teaching my Sci Fi/Fantasy/Horror course and Fiction Workshop for the spring.  Then I’m off to Virginia for a couple of weeks and onward to Santa Fe where I will be studying graduate Poetry and Indigenous American Literature for two months at the Bread Loaf School of English at Middlebury College.

In the fall I will also be teaching four freshman composition courses at A-B Tech.  Should be an exciting rest of the year!  As always you can purchase my three books on and The Killer Detective Novelist at Malaprop’s here in Asheville in the Mystery section.  Buncombe County Library also has The Killer Detective Novelist in its system now.

With my new blog on WordPress, I will be adding photos here and there.

Here is the spring issue of Act Two Magazine with my book column, a piece on the Yale Art Gallery renovation, a short article on local craft furniture makers in CT, plus a feature on gardens and farmers’ markets in Black Mountain, NC, as well as my pride and joy:  a feature on reading James Joyce’s Ulysses at Oxford then traveling on a dream trip to Ireland right afterward.

As always, thanks for reading.  Hugs.
