Book Launch Announced, and Melons and Memory gets a cover!!!!   1 comment

Come one, come all. You know you want to:

The launch of my first full length book, Melons and Memory, has been set for November 27th at the Hygienic Art Gallery in New London CT. This means a great deal to me, as the Hygienic was one of the first places I ever read my work. We also have a cover! A beautiful photograph of my daughter Estella, before she had hair, enjoying her first watermelon. I’m especially proud of this shot, as I’m holding the child and the watermelon, as well as taking the picture, all at the same time.

The book will be available from the publisher’s website,, and, as both a paperback and ebook. Just in time for Christmas!!
