“Uriah” is published in the Assisi Journal

The Kids Book Review (KBR) is an Australian site devoted to fun, quality literature for young people. Run by a dedicated and far too busy group of women, it monitors and recommends the best in books for kids. It offers excellent credibility to aspiring authors, so I tried to bolster my reputation a bit by writing several stories for them a few years back. “The Dark Monster” was the first of these. I liked its two characters – a grandfather and his grandson – and, more importantly, they liked each other. More stories naturally sprang from their friendship. The latest was just published in the Assisi journal, a publication associated with St Francis College in Brooklyn.. “Uriah” has an additional character, but the story’s inspiration derived gramps and the kid. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I still do.

P.S. I’ve included a link to a poem of mine that’s also in Assisi.

The Dark Monster!

Many great story-tellers never write down a word.  Ed Mckean’s long ago campfire yarns inspired me to write this story and I thank KBR for publishing it.  I hope Ed will like it and that it will call to mind all those big eyes across the fire – Jeremy’s, Jon’s, Patrick’s, Laura’s, Christina’s and Paul’s.
