Keep an eye out for the summer 2014 edition of Great Lakes Review. I’ve got a piece in there and the release event was a ton of fun. The editors did a 7 city tour of key cities throughout the region. When the Milwaukee event took place, 8 writers with work in the issue spoke, including myself.

You should totally come, and you don’t even have to bring a dish to pass because it’s not a potluck. But I love banana bread if you insist.

I met a hulking 6’4″ veteran the other day who is suffering from the most horrendous PTSD. Reminded me of this poem I wrote which aired on the radio. I think initially I titled it Collateral Damage.
