It's been a busy summer! I'm still working on my series "My Life As A Chicken" and as much as I'd like to be finished with it, I think this is a series I'll add to for the rest of my life. I've done an interview with the UK publication Peripheral ARTeries. Please have a look.

Thanks for checking in. I'll post again soon


One of the characters that informed my childhood was Auntie Edna. Edna was my dad's aunt. Edna was big and loud! She had the absolute best HAHAHA laugh. Loud and strong it made you laugh just to hear it. Another thing I remember about Edna were the elaborate bathing caps she wore in Nana's pool. White skin tight rubber helmets bursting forth with vibrant flora. Amazing.

1968. I woke in the morning to my family sitting together. Exactly like this. Mom holding baby Brian, Ed on her right and Sue on her left. No dad. Dad had left us. I wondered what would become of us. Too much for my 5 year old head. At some point he came back and we survived and even grew as a family. A bit of a rough ride, but all of us made it here to 2017 with varying degrees of success.
