“Yeti”

Posted by admin under Uncategorized

My very-short story (it might even be flash fiction) “Yeti” is out today in the anthology ROBBED OF SLEEP, VOLUME 4.  It was a fun, moody bit of Gothic-Pulp to write. Check it out at the link.  Here’s the cover:

Donna Pedersen GoFundMe

Posted by admin under fundraisers

Donna Pedersen, my sister Lorraine’s close friend and coworker, has been fighting cancer for some time now. She’s been through 6 different chemotherapies and two rounds of radiation only to be told that there is nothing more they can do. Donna’s been offered a chance at a brand new therapy that insurance companies don’t cover, but it’s expensive and she needs help covering costs. I’m sharing her GoFundMe page in the hopes that my friends who can afford to will contribute, even just a few dollars, and in the hopes that those who can’t spare the money right now with boost the signal on this. Please help in one way or the other!

Latest New Song

Posted by admin under Uncategorized

While I’m plugging away on revamping this site and plugging away on writing more short stories, I finally managed to upload the third of the songs I’ve co-written and recorded to my Bandcamp page.

It’s called “Someday,” and it’s based a bit on the school experiences of at least two kids who are important to me (but who shall remain nameless for reasons). It’s about overcoming bullying and ostracizing and adversity, and being who you are, and all the fears that go along with that.

I wrote the words. Barry Mangione wrote the music and played guitars. Darrell long added some percussion and a bit of keys while he was producing the song.

It’s actually the first of the songs I co-wrote and recorded, although it’s the third to come to internet availability.

All proceeds will be donated to Reverse The Trend, a non-profit I’ve mentioned before. RTT brings anti-bullying and self-esteem programming to middle schools around the US.

I hope you’ll give the song a listen, and perhaps a purchase, at the link embedded in the song title above.
