“Tryst” began as sketches for a fairly tedious novel. After residing among ancient computer files for fifteen years or so, I got it out, trimmed away most of it and refashioned what was left into a ghostly climbing tale. It won a prize and publication. Please let me know what you think!

Editor Richard Loller generously added this Yosemite reminiscence to his Preservation Foundation site. When you take teenagers to mountains where bears reside, they will inevitably meet. Here’s the link:
My very first Bogerd story – The Ogre’s Secret – found a home in Broadswords and Blasters, issue 6. Friend and raconteur Ed McKean gave me an idea for this one long ago. John Miller and I worked together a few years back on teaching materials intended to drop students into a Minecraft world of vikings and castles. That project inspired me to look at this story again and get it up to speed. It’s a romp and nothing more, but I hope you’ll enjoy it!

My climbing story “Fallen Angel” is included in the latest anthology of the Seven Deadly Sins series. Avarice will come out on April 3rd, but its cover is here already. I thought I’d share it with you all.
I thought I’d give you a heads up. I’ve made a modest contribution to what promises to be a great anthology. Avarice is the latest volume in The Seven Deadly Sins, a YA Anthology and will be available early in April. My story “Fallen Angel” is tucked into the mix of compelling stories. I’ll update you as publication approaches.
