The Hanging Gardens – A short story recently selected for this years issue of Bricolage (The University of Washingtons Literary Journal), which will be released in May. At it’s most basic it’s about love. It is also about the journey, about art, acceptance, motivation, and perfection, about growing old, about death, and about God.
The All Elusive Book – You cannot buy my book online or in any store. The only way you can get a copy is if you get it from me personally. I won’t tell you the name, but if you look for it, you might find it somewhere on the internet. If you want a copy, find me in person, hunt me down, look in Seattle and Issaquah, I regularly get coffee at the Issaquah Coffee Company and frequent Malarky’s. Just don’t expect a copy to reach you by mail. There are a limited number of copies, so if you want one, get one soon.

Short Film: Tall People – An indie film director, Danjuma Mallum, sent out a request for short stories. I sent him a copy of “Tall People” and he asked me to write him a script for a short film he can take to film festivals. Currently, the script is finished, and once the director has moved on from his current project, he will begin filming “Tall People”. Tentatively set to be filmed in March 2011, so I’m crossing my fingers on this. I will let you in on news as soon as I hear any, so check back often.
