Charlie Artists Left an Indelible Mark

My latest published in the Hartford Courant. The Charlie Hebdo tragedy got me, especially the images of their offices, bloodied art and papers strewn about, and I struggled to come to terms with the tragedy. I felt compelled to say something about it, so I wrote from an artist’s perspective, how it feels, the compulsion to write no matter what the cost, to get out a truth, whether it’s ugly or not, that is the risk and it’s not always so popular.

Fiction updates:  My story “Pearl” has been selected to appear in a special issue #13 of Bartleby Snopes, to be released soon. And my story “A Good Night for Maali” has been nominated for Queen’s Ferry Press best small fiction. Also, my creepy story, “Voices” will be up soon on HelloHorror in their new quarterly magazine.  I’ve been working on a few more flash fiction stories, along with an existential longer piece, at 120 pages now. I’m not sure how it will fare in the market.  I’m also hoping to put together a collection of my flash fiction, at some point.
