Hi, here with a bit o' news to tickle your fancy. Like most folks in 2020 I been holed up for quite a spell, but busy. Have a new CD "Bare Bones" aimed for release in early October, a 4-disc set of 56 songs, subtitled "Chance, Folly, Desire & Dream" - best described by the liner notes on the back cover: “These songs, just vocal and guitar, recorded in ’78, ’79, ’81, and ’84 on a portable cassette, are remnants and revenants from my roaring 20s and dirty 30s, when it finally dawned on me that singin’ in bars…Read more
READERS! Received a fine review in BookTrib by Peggy Kurkowski (member of the National Book Critics Circle) of my new novel KING HARVEST - Book 1, The Kansas Murder Trilogy! Check the brief blurb below and/or click link for the full review. If interested, you can buy the book online at Amazon or order from any independent bookstore near you. Thanks!

King Harvest is rich in characters and backstory, adding multiple layers to a straightforward conceit: choices have consequences, and they often reap the whirlwind. Readers will look forward to the second installment of the trilogy, which promises a new time, characters and story." -- BookTrib, Peggy Kurkowski (member of National Book Critics Circle)
As you likely know from browsing these Gothic pages, I also write books. Proud to announce that THE KANSAS MURDER TRILOGY will be forthcoming in 2022 from Crossroad Press. KING HARVEST, Book 1 (release date Jan. 25th) is already available for preorder at Amazon, B&N, Apple, Google, and Kobo. BANKS OF THE RIVER, Book 2, will be out in late winter or early spring; and you can expect Book 3, SKIN FOR SKIN, by next summer. If interested please take a look and perhaps try a sample at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09KJ7XSM5. Thanks!
