Carve Magazine

Carve Magazine did a three page spread on me in their latest paper issue. I submitted my short story “Peach Polyester Pantsuit” to them and they rejected it. I revised the story and months later, Short Fiction Break published it. Carve Magazine did a clever follow up on the story republishing both versions.

Catcher in the Rye

This is a page from Chapter 19 of JD Salinger’s classic novel, Catcher in the Rye.

The book has been required reading for many high school students since it was released in 1951. It is often referred to as one of the best books of the twentieth century.

This is where I got the title of my book of gay poetry, Flit. Of course, we’ve come a long way since Salinger wrote the book. But there is still some work to do.
