Bewildering Stories biography
In 2006, I retired from teaching and turned to writing poetry and short-form prose. I published a number of poems in such e-magazines as Shampoo, Review Americana, Tipton, Barnwood, Haibun Today, Ink, Sweat, and Tears, Atlas Poetica, Blue and Yellow Dog, Shot Glass, Six Minute Magazine, Cricket Online Review, an e-chapbook in the 2River series, entitled, “La Vida de Piedra y de Palabra,” an extended historical poem, “Five Episodes in the Navajo Degradation,” in Lacuna, and “The Turn of Art,” a poetical dramatic scene, in Fiction International.
More recently, I have published several short-short stories in Fifty-Word Stories, Out of the Gutter, Postcard Shorts, Word Shack, Thick Jam, Free Flash Fiction, Ink, Sweat, and Tears, Spinoza Blue, Short Story ME, and Linden Avenue. I have just finished a chapbook ms. of 15 flash fictions based on homelessness in San Francisco.
Muse-Pie Press nominated poems of mine from Shot Glass for the Pushcart Prize.
