The “Steel Toe Review”, a fine journal of contemporary Southern Arts and Literature, just published my “Dogwood Dream”. I am most honored to have it included in this journal and pleased that people will be able to read it. The link is below. This story was singled out last year by winning the “New Millennium Writings” short fiction award, though I remain quite humble about the recognition. Some stories push you to a higher competence than you can achieve on your own. This story did that to me. I can’t write any better.
