The following stories, poems, music, movies, and artwork are a small representative sample of my work. Each of them has been published. That information appears below the title. Getting a work published or not, in my opinion, doesn't confer any merit or demerit. After getting nearly 150 works published, I grew weary of the process. The nasty remarks from editors grew tiresome, such as the remark by one fellow who suggested that my work "contained too much unintentional humor." So, while I continue to write, my being "heavily into submission" has waned. Perhaps in my new environment in a writing and artistic community, that situation might change.
