Thomas Tallis, Renaissance composer and musical genius, lived from 1505 to 1585 in England. I’ve admired his music since I was a youth, but only recently became curious how he lived so long in an age when heads literally rolled. Beryl Belsky has kindly posted my speculations on her Writer’s Drawer site. Take a peek if you don’t mind an offbeat (pun intended!) story. (Sorry! The link is no longer available!)
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.
